McDowell Mountain Music Festival (M3F) is a 100% nonprofit music festival that was established in 2004 and has become a musical destination for festivalgoers. The Festival is celebrating its 15th year, attracting visitors to Arizona with previous headliners such as Flume, Kid Cudi, Beck, The Shins, Porter Robinson, DJ Mustard, The Avett Brothers, and more.
In a commitment to giving back, M3F has adopted a 3 C’s belief – community, culture, and charity. 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 great opportunity to experience the energy of people joined by their love of music and art, and their enthusiasm in helping the community.
