The full line-up is out for Memphis in May's Beale Street Music Festival. The festival, which takes place Friday, May 1st through Sunday, May 3rd at Tom Lee Park, will feature a diverse group of headliners: Rap titan Snoop Dogg, megawatt pop tart Katy Perry, local soul legend Al Green, boomer folk-rock god James Taylor, and modern rockers Fall Out Boy are among the biggest names on the slate.

Green, fresh over his recent Grammy triumph, leads a local contingent that also includes fellow hall-of-famer Jerry Lee Lewis, rap stalwarts Three 6 Mafia, blues up-and-comers Cedric Burnside & Lightnin' Malcolm, and promising Midtown rock band Jump Back Jakes.

Among the more interesting and reliable names filling out the lineup are jam-rocker Ben Harper, hip-hop band The Roots, folk-rocker Bonnie Raitt, and punk/alt godfather Elvis Costello.

Tickets for this year's Beale Street Music Festival will go on sale this afternoon at all Ticketmaster outlets. Three-day passes are $63.50, and will be available through April 30. Check back here for the full lineup at 2 p.m. or see MemphisinMay.org for more info.
