McDowell Mountain Music Festival

McDowell Mountain Music Festival 2015: Everything You Need to Know About This Weekend's Event

Downtown Phoenix's Margaret T. Hance Park will become something of a hallowed ground for music fans this weekend. Over three straight days, a couple of acres of grass will be transformed into an outdoor temple of sound during the annual McDowell Mountain Music Festival featuring some rather godlike deities from indie rock, electronica, blues, and jam band worlds will be eagerly worshiped by the faithful underneath the sun and stars.

Think we're laying it on a bit thick here? Probably, but it definitely could be argued that MMMF, which takes place from Friday, March 27, to Sunday, March 29, is something akin to a spiritual experience for some of the thousands of people who turn out for the annual event in droves. Its also a pilgrimage of sorts for some folks who travel across a few states to attend.
