March 24, 2014 —McDowell Mountain Music Festival is one the Phoenix Metro’s premier musical events. It is three days of good music, good weather, and good people coming together to throw a party a benefit charity and have a good time. Last year they made big wave by moving the show to Margaret T. Hance Park in downtown Phoenix. Then made even bigger waves by bringing in one of the biggest lineups the fest has ever had with headliners The Shins, The Roots, and Umphrey’s McGee.

This year the festival is trying to continue that upward trend, and they did a great job with their lineup selection.

On the first day of the fest, March 28, Sedona Ariz., based psychedelic desert-folk outfit decker. (sic) will be opening the main stage at 3:30 p.m. Also playing the mainstage will be a mid-card that features local Sara Robinson and The Midnight Special, jam band Lettuce, Pretty Lights Music participant Gramatik, and headliner STS9. On the local stage for day one of MMMF will be Field Tripp, Avery, The Delta Fifths, and Spafford.

For day two of the festival, Tempe based folk act Jared and The Mill be opening the main stage at 11:30 A.M. Followed by performances from Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, Allen Stone, Dispatch, Slightly Stoopid, and a headlining performance by The Disco Biscuits. On the local stage Travis James and the Wretched Ones will begin the day, followed by a  drum circle. Then The Hourglass Cats, Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers, and The Black Bottom Lighters.

The main stage opens at 11:30 a.m. on the third day as well with a performance by The Wiley Ones, The West Water Outlaws, Donna and the Buffalo, G. Love & Special Sauce, Dwight Yoakam, and headliners Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite. The local stage is going to feature the Tommy Ash Band, a drum circle, Between Spaces, and the Guru Gods.

TIckets are currently going for $40 a day, but the price will raise to $45 on the day of the festival. V.I.P packages are available.
