Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by M3F, but it’s such an awesome an event that we know you will love it.
If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know we’re big fans of the local music scene here at #FrayLife and cover local acts and concerts from time to time.
So when got the chance to team up with one of the most fun, longest running festivals in the country that brings amazing acts to Phoenix AND raises money for local charities, we couldn’t pass it up.
If you’re a serious festivalgoer or been in Phoenix long enough, you’ve probably heard of (or even been to) M3F. It’s been around since 2004 and has grown into a destination festival thanks to its always lit music lineup as well as its commitment to community, culture, and charity.
When we say charity, we mean it. More specifically, M3F means it and donates 100% of profits to local organizations that have a real impact in Phoenix.
When M3F returns in 2019 it’ll be bringing Odesza, Empire of the Sun, Umphrey’s McGee, Big Wild, The Knocks and more to Downtown Phoenix, and proceeds will benefit the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Music Therapy Program, Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Ready to rock out for awesome causes? The fun goes down March 1-3 and you can snag your tickets here.
Just in case you need more convincing, here are 4 reasons that M3F is one of the most can’t miss events of the spring:
The strong ties to the Phoenix community are part of what makes the M3F festival so unique and fun. They’ve donated over 1 million dollars to Phoenix charities over the last 15 years and the festival is a great source of revenue for local downtown businesses each spring. You win, local businesses win, and deserving charities win so M3F could be renamed M3W… as in win-win-win.
Did we mention that all money raised by M3F goes to charity? This year they’re donating proceeds to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Music Therapy Program, Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. That means while you’re rocking out to awesome tunes, you know your ticket money is making a difference in the local community.
Speaking of music, get ready for a weekend jam-packed with an eclectic mix of EDM, Jam, Indie, and Roots. We already mentioned that huge artists like Odesza, Empire of the Sun, Umphrey’s McGee, Big Wild, The Knocks are the headliners, but 37 bands in total will perform across 3 stages during the 3 days of M3F. That’s a ton of tunes.
As much as M3F is known for featuring insane lineups and supporting local charities, they also know how to turn the weekend into one hell of a party. Jam out in an impromptu drum circle, enjoy yoga before all the music starts, and devour delicious food with thousands of your new best friends.
We could keep the list going, but you get the point. M3F is an absolutely amazing time for even better causes, so grab your friends, mark your calendars and grab your tickets to one of March’s marquee events before you miss out.
Got festivals on the brain? M3F is just one of the MANY festivals we can’t wait for this year. Check out the most fun food festivals coming to Phx in 2019 while you pass the time until M3F!
