Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Mark your calendars, Phoenix.

The McDowell Mountain Music Festival has announced its 2018 dates. The three-day event will take place from Friday, March 2, through Sunday, March 4, at Margaret T. Hance Park in downtown Phoenix.

The lineup hasn't been announced, but last year's was revealed in November. The 2016 edition of the festival featured The Shins, Grouplove, Flume, Chromeo, and Gov’t Mule.

In years past, the nonprofit event also has hosted Beck, Porter Robinson, Kid Cudi, and The Avett Brothers. Its 2018 edition will mark 15 years of the event.

No word on when tickets will go on sale — or what they'll cost — though last year, tickets went on sale right around the lineup announcement.

We'll update when we have more information. Stay tuned.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
