M3F music and arts festival, a purely philanthropic affair, will return for its annual showing in Downtown Phoenix at Margaret T. Hance Park on March 6-8, 2020—with ample talent in tow.
The festival has secured headliners, Bon Iver and RÜFÜS DU SOL, alongside an audacious undercard that includes bitbird boss San Holo, reggae-ready Stick Figure, Local Natives, Sofi Tukker, and dozens more across a multitude of genres. In past years, it’s hosted the likes of ODESZA, Empire of the Sun, Kid Cudi, The Avett Brothers, and more of some of the most in-demand acts music has to offer.
Since 2004, the festival’s organizers have directed 100% of their efforts yearly on behalf of a litany of local charities, including the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. M3F has raised over $2 million since its inception, with yearly returns increasingly sizably; 2019’s installment alone raised $509,000 according to organizers.
Tickets are on sale now: A good time for a good cause, available here.
Bringing over 40 acts across October 19 – 21, Lost Lake boasts a uniquely curated festival experience, blending top-notch hip-hop, electronic music, and rock with a heavy emphasis on Phoenix’s burgeoning arts and culinary scenes. With festival amenities that include a marketplace to discover local artisans and creators, a philanthropic component with FOUNDation and an entire culinary experience dubbed Phoenix Flavors, Lost Lake applies just as much emphasis on its host city as its lineup. From Janelle Monáe and Young Thug to local favorites Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra and Jimmy Eat World, Lost Lake drops off one of the most diverse lineups of the summer for their 2018 installment.
