Our recommendation for getting to Beale Street Music Festival

Generally this will be highly dependent on where you are staying in Memphis. If you are anywhere near Downtown I highly recommend just walking or biking to the festival. If you are staying outside of downtown you can utilize either public transportation (bus) or take an Uber. In general I recommend just taking a bus or trolley as they are far cheaper. The bus will cost you just $1.75 a ride and the trolley is even cheaper at $1 a ride. It's not uncommon for Uber to have drastically surged prices for Beale Street so try to avoid them and save some money by using public transportation.
