The list is topped by electronic dance music DJ/producers ZHU, Kaytranada, and Jungle, as well as soul singer-songwriter Leon Bridges, electro-pop band A R I Z O N A, hip-hop artist Bryce Vine, and Phoenix-born jam band Spafford
M3F 2022 is scheduled to take place on Friday, March 4, and Saturday, March 5. As with previous editions of the festival, it’s happening at Margaret T. Hance Park in downtown Phoenix.
The rest of the 2022 lineup leans heavily on EDM-oriented artists like Elderbrook, Whethan, Surf Mesa, Two Feet, and Blu Detiger, but also includes indie performer Goth Babe, R&B/hip-hop singer Cautious Clay, live act Two Feet, and pop artist Bea Miller.
Rock, pop, and indie acts like Big Something, Thom Ko, Yoke Lore, Joshy Soul, New Madrid, Ford, Gabriels, Sarcastic Sounds, Mildlife, Jungle Fire, and The Higgs will also perform.
Next year’s event will be the first M3F to take place in two years, as its 2021 event was canceled. (M3F 2020 took place just before pandemic-related shutdowns put the concert industry on pause because of the pandemic.)
Tickets for M3F 2022 will go on sale this morning through the festival’s website.
