It was one of our favorite festivals last year. Now in it’s 13th year McDowell Mountain Music Festival is 100% non-profit, with all proceeds going to Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation and UMOM New Day Center. With a strong focus on community involvement and the arts, Mcdowell Mountain does an excellent job of creating an environment that brings everyone together.
The lineup this year is amazing with Beck, The Avett Brothers, Kid Cudi, Porter Robinson, Animal Collective and more! After Hours performances will be by Animal Collective, Goldfish, Griz and M!NT on Friday and Saturday evenings at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel. The party starts at 11:30pm and admission is only $20!
McDowell Mountain Music Festival is more than just good music! There will be a variety of vendors there with jewelry, clothing, artwork and more, there is something for everyone!
There will be a variety of food available from pizza to vietnamese food, you shouldn’t have a hard time finding something to eat. Vendors include Pho-King, Paletas Betty, Hungry Monk, All Gourmet Catering and more. Beverages will be provided by Oskar Blues and Ghost Pines. You can always try pickaloan.co.uk, if you need any loan for your expences.
Last year was HOT!!! We are already breaking records this year, so don’t forget your sunscreen! If you are spending the entire day there we recommend bringing a shade tent, hat, umbrella or other type of shade (and maybe a mister?). There will be a water station as well so don’t forget to drink plenty of water!
Bring cash as not all vendors last year accepted cards. If you’re coming from out of town and still haven’t booked a hotel check out MMMF’s recommendations here(http://mmmf.com/festival-guide/#Parking-hotels).
