Throttle Fest Memphis Coming in August

Wednesday, June 10, 2015
The mayhem of the Full Throttle Saloon, the world’s largest biker bar, is coming to Memphis International Raceway (MIR) August 28-29.

Throttle Fest Memphis, which is presented by Full Throttle Saloon and powered by the Fun Ford Series, Rock 103 and iHeart Media, will be two days of adrenaline fueled excitement for car, motorcycle and music lovers alike.

“This is an event we’ve been trying to get to Memphis for a long time,” said MIR VP and GM Pam Kendrick. “It’s going to be the perfect mix of horsepower and rock music that people are going to love.”


The event is headlined by the platinum selling rock of Jackyl, who will take to the main stage on Saturday night. Jackyl will be one of several bands rocking MIR during the weekend.

“We’re excited to be playing in front of Memphis fans again,” said Jessie Dupree frontman for Jackyl. “That’s a city that loves its music and we’re going to give them an awesome show at Throttle Fest.”

Other entertainment features the “Wall of Death” motordrome, a circular arena in which skilled riders defy gravity to perform motorcycle tricks and stunts. The Circus Una Motorcycle Thrill Show is an all-female daredevil trio that combines trapeze acrobatics with motorcycle riding on a high wire. The Full Throttle Rockstar Bartenders will make every beverage stop a treat, and there will even be a Leprechaun at the event.  

If that’s not enough, the Fun Ford Series will bring the best of the Blue Oval Brigade to MIR with drag racing, all-Ford car show and swap meet during the day.

More music acts will be announced in the next couple of weeks. Throttle Fest Memphis sponsors include Full Throttle S’loonshine and Jesse James American Outlaw Bourbon Whiskey.

Full weekend tickets for this festival of wall-to-wall entertainment are $35 and can be purchased online starting Friday, June 12 by going to RaceMIR.com or www.ThrottleFest.com.
