Local Music Festival Giving Back To The Community

In a commitment to give back, M3F (McDowell Mountain Music Festival) has created a unique community event that was adopted on the 3 C’s belief – community, culture, and charity. M3F is a great opportunity to experience the energy of people joined by their love of music and art, and their enthusiasm in helping the community.

These 3C’s fuel the Festival’s underlying dedication to its local people and causes. In the spirit of this belief, all of the proceeds from the festival benefit local nonprofit organizations.

M3F is a 100% nonprofit music festival that was established in 2004 and has become a musical destination for festivalgoers. The festival has attracted visitors to Arizona with previous acts such as Flume, Beck, Kid Cudi, Chromeo, Father John Misty, Grouplove, The Avett Brothers, The Revivalists, DJ Mustard, The Roots, The Shins, Slightly Stoopid, and many others.

March 1-3, 2019, Hance Park in Phoenix will host the popular festival with 100% of their proceeds that will fund local charities such as Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Music Therapy Program, Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The festival line-up includes nearly 40 performers, but offers attendees a wide variety of entertainment.  Click here to view complete line up.
