About ten-thousand people are expected to attend the Elvis fest in Ypsilanti, thanks to a publicity boost from Graceland. About seven-thousand Elvis lovers showed up last year.
The shrine in Memphis, Tennessee put Elvisfest on its Web site and its fan club lists.
The festival director says people are traveling from as far away as Georgia, Nebraska, Missouri, Florida, New York and Canada.
This year's festival will center around concerts by at least 13 Elvis tribute performers.
Others will perform as Ray Charles, Tom Jones, Cher, Jerry Lee Lewis and the Blues Brothers.
