Upon the onset of springtime and the return of warm, sunny days, McDowell Mountain Music Festival (M3F) has shined for over a decade to grace Phoenix with a fun event with a purpose that helps the community as a whole. The festival that has seen world-known artists such as Porter Robinson, Kid Kudi, GRiZ, and more is back this March 3-5th and looking tempting as ever. Talent for the 3-day event includes Flume, The Shins, Chromeo, Grouplove, Lettuce, Emancipator Ensemble, Gov’t Mule, and Sunsquabi, to name a few.
M3F has been attracting dedicated attendees to Arizona for years, and this 14th year is bound to be even better. Not only is there a great lineup and a beautiful location in the valley, the festival is 100% nonprofit with all proceeds going to benefit two local charities: Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation and UMOM New Day Center. The event is a perfect example of partying with a purpose as the creators have been set on 3 important ideals: community, culture, and charity. They insist on the importance of connecting with your community through various forms including music, arts, and food while at the same time supporting charities and lifting others up. With so many years under their belt and passionate recommendations from locals to attend, you definitely don’t want to miss this! Come make a difference while having the time of your life at M3F 2017 at HANCE PARK, DOWNTOWN PHOENIX, AZ!
