A highlight of each Nashville Elvis Festival is the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest preliminary round, with the winner moving on to Graceland’s Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest Semifinal & Finals in Memphis during Elvis Week each August. 16 contestants have been hand-selected and invited to compete in Nashville, coming from Australia, Ireland, Great Britain, and all over the USA.
