A fixture in the hearts of music lovers and philanthropists alike, M3F Fest is set to make its return to Phoenix, Arizona from March 3-4, 2023.
Starting in 2004, M3F has become one of the most prominent festivals to grace Arizona, and it is known both for its stellar lineups and for donating $4.5 million to charities. Located downtown at the city’s lovely Margaret T. Hance Park, attendees will enjoy a cascade of genres while supporting the community at large.
Known for their eclectic lineups, M3F Festival brings well-regarded international acts spanning several genres.
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Maggie Rogers is slated to headline with inventive British producer Jamie xx. From top down, the M3F Festival lineup has something for everyone.
Hailing from France, Polo & Pan have been making waves across the states with their fresh take on modern house/electronic – a set sure to have the masses grooving. Chillwave pioneer Toro y Moi will bring his versatile electronic-infused indie rock. Rapper & singer Quinn XCII invites attendees to go on a journey from hip-hop to EDM and with many stops in between.
The undercard for M3F Fest is not to be slept on, saturated with up-and-comers and established acts traversing the indie & electronic spheres.
Nu disco fans will enjoy German producer Purple Disco Machine, France’s Darius, and electro-chameleon Jim-E Stack. House enthusiasts are sure to get down to Aussie house lord Hayden James.
Indie pop lovers will also be quite at home at M3F, with British Columbia’s Peach Pit and “Music Sounds Better with You” darlings Neil Francis (not to be confused with Chicago’s Neal Francis, who will also be performing). Another Aussie making waves is burgeoning new-age soul artist Winston Surfshirt. Following a memorable performance at Lollapalooza in 2022, heartfelt singer-songwriter Chelsea Cutler is sure to invoke a tear or two somewhere in the audience.
Last year, M3F Fest raised $1.2 million dollars for charity.
M3F Festival 2023 invites music lovers to hear talented artists from across the world, enjoy the sun, and participate in charitable contributions focused on community, arts, education, and the environment. The fest also focuses on sustainability, with over 80% of waste being recycled each year. Festival season is quickly approaching, and M3F offers attendees an early opportunity to enjoy fantastic live outdoor music.
