The new M3F lineup just dropped!
Arizona’s largest 100% nonprofit music festival, M3F Fest, has announced the lineup for the highly-anticipated 2023 edition at Margaret T. Hance Park in Downtown Phoenix. The two-day event is March 3-4 and tickets are on sale now.
When fans buy a ticket to have a great time, they are also giving back to the community around them. M3F donates 100% of festival proceeds to charity with a record $1.2 million donated last year and $4.4 million donated since 2004.
“M3F is extremely unique in that it sits at the center of music, art, culture, community, and charity,” Festival Manager Warner Bailey said in a press release. “Fans that attend M3F are able to buy into something much larger than just 2 days of great music.”
The festival lineup will once again bring together an eclectic group of artists across the worlds of indie, pop, electronic, and more. This includes the beloved Grammy-nominated vocalist Maggie Rogers, forward-thinking English beatmaker and producer Jamie xx, French electronic duo Polo & Pan, Detroit singer Quinn XCII, and the off-kilter sounds of the multi-talented Toro y Moi.
Additional highlights include Purple Disco Machine, Ashe, COIN, Chelsea Cutler, Peach Pit, Hayden James, Becky Hill, and more.
With this process, festival producers aim to provide more transparency to attendees. According to a press release, organizations will be required to provide a more detailed list of how they intend to use the funds, following up throughout the year to check in on where donations went and creating a short video that details how the money was spent once.
“We launched the M3F Fund to exist as a year-round venture, leveraging the M3F platform and resources to create a tangible difference in our community,” Bailey said in a press release. “The M3F Fund exists as a 365-day ecosystem that allows us to continue our charitable efforts after the gates close. We work with each charity/non-profit throughout the year to provide updates on how the donation is being used and how fans can continue to support the causes that are important to them.”
