TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - Tickets go on sale Monday for the Tupelo Elvis Festival.

WTVA-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1g39thI ) the 4-day festival begins on June 5.

Last year, an estimated 10,000 people saw performances on two stages in downtown Tupelo.

Festival organizers say Elvis Presley tribute artists events will be moved this year from the Lyric Theater to the BancorpSouth Arena to make room for more fans.

Jessica Hollinger, a marketing associate with the Downtown Main Street Association, says moving to the arena will increase the number of tickets available for the inside events to 1,600 from last year’s 400.

Tickets will be available at the BancorpSouth Arena box office and www.ticketmaster.com starting Monday at 10 a.m.
