Music at the Mill
Music at the Mill will be a new event to this year’s Elvis Festival
The event will celebrate up-and-coming Mississippi musicians. It will be Thursday, June 1, from 6-11:30 p.m.
Music at the Mill will feature Silas, Light Beam Rider and Rock Eupora, with headliner The Weeks.
Tickets for the event are $10 and can be purchased at the door or online.
The Tupelo Cotton Mill is an old cotton factory newly renovated by attorney Greg Pirkle. Music at the Mill will be the first official event held in the Tupelo Cotton Mill.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to have the grand opening of the Tupelo Cotton Mill than with Music at the Mill,” said Will Crockett, Online Content Manager at Tupelo Convention
and Visitors Bureau. “So much hard work went into building a high energy, smaller scale show featuring all Mississippi artists. This kickoff event brings a whole new energy and
direction to Elvis Fest that should carry on throughout the entire festival weekend.”
