In a statement announcing the acts, Memphis in May President and CEO James Holt noted that, “after a three-year absence, we felt it was important to come back big.”

“The 2022 lineup is the biggest roster of the best touring artists in the festival’s history,” added Holt, “with more surprises on the way and being Beale Street Music Festival, of course, there’s something for almost every musical taste.”

BSMF released the first round of artists back in December. Joining previously announced acts like Lil Wayne, Da Baby, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, Smashing Pumpkins and Foo Fighters will be Weezer, Counting Crows, Stone Temple Pilots, Death Cab For Cutie, Spoon and more.
