Non-profit festival M3F is set to return to Phoenix in 2024, bringing a house-fueled lineup with Lane 8, Duke Dumont, Gorgon City, SG Lewis, and more.
Festivals are all about being able to catch great music and have fun with your friends, but what if you could give back to a community while doing that, too? That’s exactly what M3F Fest set out to accomplish when it launched two decades ago, and since then, it has continued to achieve greatness in the non-profit realm by donating $5.2 million to charity along the way.
M3F Fest returns next year from March 1-2 to a new venue. The historic Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix, Arizona, will allow for M3F to grow in a larger space and will feature brand-new art installations, with more exciting details to be announced. M3F’s growth will also allow them to give more back to the community through their M3F Fund, which launched last year. Ticket sales contribute to the fund whose beneficiaries have included the Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Music Therapy Program, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, St. Vincent de Paul, and many more.
Adding to the excitement is the lineup, which features pop, alternative, R&B, and electronic artists. Dance music fans will be thrilled to see Lane 8, Gorgon City, Duke Dumont, SG Lewis, WhoMadeWho, and Elderbrook featured on the lineup. Joining them are Poolside, Drama, Coco & Breezy, Vandelux, Young Franco, as well as others such as Dominic Fike, Hippo Campus, and Roosevelt. So whether you’re into the ambient, funky, or more dance-pop side, M3F’s lineup offers a spectacular list of talent.
Tickets for M3F Fest are on sale now on their official website. Additionally, applications for the 2024 M3F Fund are open. Organizations focusing on the fund’s pillars – Community, Education, Arts, and Environment – are encouraged to apply.
