After three full rounds of announcements, McDowell Mountain Music Festival (aka The Woodstock of Phoenix), made the last chiseling strike to their masterpiece of a lineup this week. With the likes of MS MR, The Oh Hellos, and a combination of local and national acts, M3F’s lineup comes full circle with a seamless blend of Indie, Hip-Hop, Jam(-ish?),and Electronic .

See the break down by day below:

  • Friday- Beck, Animal Collective, MS MR, Big Wild, Captain Squeegee, CooBee Coo, Taylor Upsahl and Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold.
  • Saturday- Kid Cudi, Porter Robinson Live, GRiZ, Bloc Party, St. Lucia, Goldfish, The Main Squeeze, Luna Aura, The Haymarket Squares, Harper & The Moths, and Fairy Bones.
  • Sunday- The Avett Brothers, Gary Clark Jr., The Oh Hellos, Bird Dog, Kaleo, Firekid, The Senators, Gus Campbell, Huckleberry, and Ruca.

Friday night (3/11/16) promises an Indie and Electronic-Pop showdown for the masses, Saturday is certainly the dance party, and Sunday will surely make you sit back and soak in the glory of heavyweight musicianship. With a promising three days of excitement, there should never be a dull moment from sunrise to sunset. Literally, check out the After Hours shows below that go until the wee hours of the morning.
