As M3F president John Largay explains in a press statement, “What really sets us apart from other music festivals, is our choice of artists year after year. 17 years has been a great experience for me and the people of Wespac Construction – to be able to participate in community and culture at this level and watch it affect the resurgence of Downtown Phoenix, to the promotion of music, family spirit and charity – it has been an honor.” Largay reminds us that the overall Festival goal is “to continue to elevate Phoenix as a music and cultural destination as well as generating revenue for our local economy, including local artists and small businesses, which are the oxygen that feeds the heart of the city.”
As Arizona’s fully nonprofit music festival, M3F is committed to giving back through their “three C’s”: community, culture and charity. 100% of proceeds from the Festival go to local nonprofit organizations. Since the festival’s launch in 2004, M3F has donated over $2,000,000 to various charitable organizations. In 2019 alone M3F raised $509,000 for local charities including the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and more.
Tickets are available now via the M3F website.
