Grind City Brewing Company is hosting its first-ever “Grind City Fest” this weekend.

“Music’s back in Memphis,” said Festival Producer Nick Barbian, in an interview with “Wake-Up Memphis.”

Following years of COVID lockdowns, Nick said starting the festival is like “uncorking a hose that has been plugged for three years.” He continued, “The appetite to see live entertainment is there, and the fact that we’re an outdoor show is really working in our favor.”

The Aug. 26-27 line-up includes bluegrass heavy hitters, Greensky Bluegrass, who will be playing both nights. The Michigan-based band is best known for their bluegrass covers of Pink Floyd classics, collaborations with Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh and Bill Kreutzmann, Cornmeal, and Billy Strings.

Grammy award-winning bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters out of Nashville, Tennessee, will also be performing.

Here Come the MummiesThe Travelin’ McCourysSaxquatchKyle Nix & the 38s, and The Wild Feathers, pack the rest of the festival, with even more to be announced.

Grind City Brewing Company President Hopper Seeley said fans can expect a line of beers, cocktail slushies, and a variety of food truck vendors.

With One-Day passes starting at $35.00 and Two-Day passes at $65.00, Grind City Fest will be one of the cheapest festivals in Memphis this year.
