Mcdowell Mountain Music Festival

Festival season may seem like it’s a long time away,  but in Phoenix, things are already heating up as their signature festival for more than a decade, McDowell Mountain Music Festival, has released it’s 2018 lineup, and it is rather spectacular.

This will be 3MF’s 17th year of providing a completely not-for-profit festival in the Valley of the Sun, but it didn’t really start to take on such formidable lineups until it’s 10-Year birthday party and big move from the outskirts of town to the heart of downtown Phoenix 2012. A  year that included some of the festival’s biggest headliners to that point The Roots, The Shins, and Umphrey’s McGee.

For 2018 3MF has tapped the likes of Big Gigantic, Griz, Nick Murphy (formerly Chet Faker), and act to be named later for their headlining slots. With Gorgon City, Cut Copy, Com Truise, THe Motet, and Dr, Dog among many others bringing up the mid-card. As well as a formidable local selection which includes Phoenix supergroup The Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra, Wyves, Jerusafunk, Treasurefruit, and many more.

A three-day ticket right now is just about $87 with fees so if Phoenix Arizona isn’t too far out the way this festival on the first weekend of March is an absolute steal.
