Get there early for the concerts. Bring a blanket, chairs, food and drink. Sit on the lawn or the bank directly across from the stage. A midtown Memphis treat in the middle of Overton park.

A great spring, summer, and fall venue for music. Bring your coolers, chairs, loungers, and anything else you need to be comfortable. Do a search for dates and performers.

This has been a round for a long time and is a staple in Memphis. In the print and summer they offer free concerts on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and some Sundays. Usually free. Great place to take the family and enjoy an outdoor concert. If you are a local or visitor it is worth a visit.

The Shell holds summer concerts every Thursday thru Sunday night. The best part is that they are FREE! You can bring your own chairs, blankets, coolers. They do have some bench type bleachers and a food truck available, but having your own picnic is even better. Very lively, family friendly atmosphere. One of the best things to do in Memphis...

One of the best free venues to listen to music. Bring a blanket, chairs and your own picnic basket and enjoy the day or evening. There are usually a few food vendors as well. Great for families too.

It is nice to have such a great turn out to a music in the park program! I can hardly believe that it runs on donations alone with the wonderful sound crew and the bands they pick. I am glad to see that Memphians are really generous to Levitt Shell! I think it was a good show.

A friend who enjoys live music was visiting and we decided to go to a free concert at the Shell. The music was good, though a thunderstorm ended things early. It was a mostly friendly and festive atmosphere. Folks chatted to their 'neighbors' as well as to those they came with and it was a reminder of good ole southern... More

Found this place through our friends we went with, saw Seryn they were very good. It is a nice park and lots of locals show up every weekend for the concerts. Music lasted about an hour and a half. They sell food and drinks. Take lawn chairs or blanket, we took lawn chairs and glad we did, it rained the... More

When the weather's great, there's nothing like sitting out on the lawn (or in your portable chair) enjoying a wide range of free music with other folks. Sound and visibility are very good, and you can even bring your dog if you are willing to sit outside the main 'bowl' of the lawn.

Regardless of your place in life, the Levitt Shell is one of the best midtown experiences, and it is free at that! You can sit with friends (or make new ones), have a picnic, and listen to excellent musicians. It is peaceful and relaxing...and no need to worry about your children being too loud or disrupting the experience of others.... More
