Stepping out in an entirely brand new location, North America’s most celebrated non-profit music festival, M3F, is honoring its 20th anniversary at Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix, Arizona on March 1-2. M3F is truly one of the most remarkable festival experiences this spring with 100% of proceeds going to charity, the event offers a stunning, expansive landscape containing three stages for an affordable price, raising a total of $5.2 million since its inception in 2004. With the 2024 lineup, M3F continues to build on its reputation of bringing global hit makers and rising acts across the worlds of indie, pop, R&B, electronic, and more to Phoenix.

From chart-topping headliners to emerging talent, the festival showcases a diverse array of musical acts, ensuring there’s never a dull moment for attendees. Highlights from the 2024 bill include the transcending sounds of Dominic Fike and Anjunadeep favorite Lane 8, plus a strong showing of the UK’s top electronic talent with Gorgon City, Duke Dumont, and SG Lewis all making appearances. M3F’s lineup will also feature award-winning London vocalist Arlo Parks, Minnesota indie rockers Hippo Campus, the mesmerizing sounds of Bakar, and fan-favorite Dayglow, along with German vocalist Roosevelt, genre-defying Los Angeles artist Fiji Blue, Chicago duo DRAMA, the disco vibes of Poolside, and the catchy alternative pop sounds of Toronto’s Valley. Electronic music continues to find a home at M3F with additional sets on deck from a diverse range of acts including Elderbrooke, Coco & Breezy, GORDO, BUNT, Vandelux, it’s murph, WhoMadeWho, Young Franco, and more. The M3F 2024 curation is paradise for indie-pop and electronic-dance lovers, you won’t want to miss out! 

As the music fills the air, attendees are free to explore the festival grounds and discover hidden gems like art installations, interactive exhibits, and local vendors offering food, drinks, and crafts. Whether lounging on the grass with friends, dancing to the beat of your favorite bands, or immersing yourself in the festival’s vibrant culture, there’s no shortage of experiences to be had at M3F. Beyond the music and charity, M3F focuses its attention on sustainability with over 80% of waste being recycled each year.

Perhaps the most memorable aspect of the M3F experience is the sense of community that permeates every corner of the festival. As strangers become friends and friends become family, attendees come together to celebrate their shared love of music and create lasting memories that will be cherished for years to come. Unfortunately, if you haven’t snagged tickets to the experience yet, the chance has slipped away for 2024 as every single ticket option is completely sold out on the official festival website, even so, hotel packages are still available for Superfans and beyond to purchase HERE and kids under 10 years old are able to attend for free with a ticketed adult. 

At sunset, the festival grounds come alive with an enchanting energy, as the music reaches its crescendo and the desert sky is illuminated by a dazzling display of lights. It’s a moment of pure magic, as thousands of voices unite in song and dance, forging connections that transcend culture, language, and background. M3F has been taking action in its community since the first year, which has included donations to beneficiaries like Habitat for Humanity and Phoenix Rescue Mission amongst many more plus establishing an all-inclusive, safe environment for West Coast music lovers. 

As the final notes fade into the night, attendees depart M3F festival with hearts full of joy and spirits lifted by the transformative power of music. For those lucky enough to experience it, M3F is more than just a music festival – it’s a journey of discovery, connection, and celebration that leaves a lasting impact on all who partake in its enchantment.
