The Raconteurs, Brandi Carlile, Wu-Tang Clan and The Revivalists are set to headline the third annual Mempho Music Festival, scheduled for Oct. 19-20 in Shelby Farms Park.

The festival lineup, released Tuesday, includes a mix of national touring artists and Mid-South acts. Among the other performers on the schedule: Margo Price, lovelytheband, Valerie June, PJ Morton, and DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia.

Continuing Mempho’s tradition of spotlighting Memphis’ musical heritage, this year’s festival will include a tribute to Sun Studio – including a performance by Jerry Phillips, son of Sun Studio founder Sam Phillips. In past years, the festival has highlighted Stax Records and Royal Studios.

Jason D. Williams, Amy LaVere, David Brookings and John Paul Keith are among the other artists performing at the Sun tribute.

General admission is $109. VIP tickets, which cost $264, include access to a VIP tent, private restrooms and a private festival entrance, among other benefits.

Super VIP tickets are $479 and include all the VIP benefits, plus a designated parking area, a chance for meet-and-greets with some Mempho artists, and access to an on-stage viewing area at the Main Stage.

Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
