Beneficiaries of McDowell Mountain Music Festival

One of the most unique features of the MMMF is that it is a 100% nonprofit endeavor. All of the proceeds will benefit two local organizations, Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation and UMOM New Day Center.


Phoenix Children’s Hospital has provided hope, healing, and the best healthcare for children since it was born in 1983, and has grown to become one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country.


UMOM New Day Centers mission is to provide homeless families and individuals with safe shelter, housing and supportive services to assist them in reaching their greatest potential.

Celebrating its third year in the heart of downtown Phoenix, McDowell Mountain Music Festival is primed to be the biggest music festival ever in Arizona. For tickets, directions and a complete lineup of scheduled acts, visit
