Don't knock it too hard, guys. I grew up in Mphs and MusicFest was something I loved and looked forward to every year. I can't even count how many great bands I've seen and funny memories I have with friends because of this event. Also, I can say after moving to AZ there is NOTHING like MusicFest (for the price and talent lineup) available out here. The closest is Coachella and it's mostly a bunch of dirty desert hippies in tents in the desert heat for three days for a lot more money!!
All in all, pretty weak. A few good ol' favorites sprinkled in, but this lineup would have been openly laughed at ten years ago.
