Gibson at the 2013 Beale Street Music Festival
The annual music festival once again attracted music enthusiasts from all 50 states and over a dozen foreign countries to the birth home of rock-n-roll and blues music.
The 2013 festival took place Friday, May 3rd through Sunday, May 5th at Tom Lee Park in downtown Memphis, a beautiful 25-acre riverfront park at the foot of historic Beale Street overlooking the mighty and majestic Mississippi River.
2013 saw one of the most talented lineups to date, including such notables as Alice in Chains, Sheryl Crow, Public Enemy, Smashing Pumpkins, The Deftones, Hall and Oates, The Black Keys, The Wallflowers, Jerry Lee Lewis, and several other Gibson artists.
Gibson hosted a 20x20 VIP Lounge, offering artists a cozy, chic and inviting respite from both the weather and lackluster accommodation afforded by festival trailers.
Cold wind gusts and recurrent showers weren’t enough to keep fans away from the Gibson booth!
