It will be a night of firsts during the 2017 This Is Memphis Music Festival.

WUMR 91.7 FM will broadcast throughout the event and feature performer interviews by Blue Tom Records students before and after the show.

The app will include a venue map, the lineup, information about the performers, playlists and more. It will be available for free download days before the event.
