McDowell Mountain Music Festival Boosts Thriving Downtown with Another Successful Year

2016 installment donates $50K to local, family-based charities

Phoenix, Arizona – April 11, 2016 –Weeks after McDowell Mountain Music Festival (M3F) closes a marquee rendition, organizers announce a $50K total donation to both UMOM New Day Centers and Phoenix Children’s Hospital. With a heavy “mix of indie, electronic, hip-hop, and jam,”M3F adds to “13 year legacy of exceptional live music and charitable giving’s.” Armed with a lineup of national heavy hitters like Beck, Kid Cudi, The Avett Brothers, Porter Robinson, and Animal Collective, the festival also donned a strong local blend of musicians across three stages in hopes of a sizable donation come year end.

“With 13 years in the rearview, our focus for elevating the local community stretches far beyond monetary donations,” John Largay, Festival founder, commented. “The overarching goal of the event is to make a substantial donation to local, family-based charities as we have done so. However, the vibrancy of downtown, a blossoming local music scene, and uplifting Phoenix and Arizona as a cultural destination is a collective effort we are proud to support.”

This year’s Festival brought 13,000 attendees to downtown Phoenix over the three-day weekend in early March. Festival proceeds have produced a $50,000 donation to local charities, Phoenix Children’s Hospital and UMOM New Day Centers. Click here to watch the official 2016 festival recap video.
