McDowell Mountain Music Festival 2016 is in 2 days, and we can’t wait! 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 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! We saw Beck last year in Tucson where he played a mix of his grammy award winning album "Morning Phase" and old favorites, and it might have been the best show we’ve ever attended. If his setlist at MMMF is half as good as it was at his show in Tucson, then we’re in for a treat. Also towards the top on our list of favorite concerts are The Avett Brothers who, since seeing them open for DMB at The Gorge Amphitheatre in 2012, have been a part of our daily playlist. Their music has a very raw, folk rock sound that will have you dancing in no time. Kid Cudi is another old favorite of ours. With his influences ranging between A Tribe Called Quest, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Ratatat, MGMT, Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and more, it’s no surprise his sound is so unique. [...]
