McDowell Mountain Music Fest Announces 2012 Lineup

Categories: Announcements

Galactic is scheduled to perform at McDowell Mountain Music Festival 2012
For the past few years, the McDowell Mountain Music Festival has hosted a mix of jam bands and indie rock fare in the parking lot of the Compound Grill.(Previous years have featured The Flaming Lips, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Matisyahu, and Michael Franti.)

Now, before you ideas about bands and fans sweltering it out on baking asphalt (eh-hem), know that the MMMF folks do it up right: putting down lush turf and setting up enough shade for all kinds of children and twirling hippies.

The initial lineup for the 2012 festivities, set to take place April 13, 14, and 15, has been announced, and it's heavy on the jammy side, featuring Ozomatli, Galactic, Anders Osborne, Trevor Hall, Dark Star Orchestra, EOTO, Bob Schneider, and Keller Williams with The Del McCoury Band.

The festival is once again a non-profit affair, with beneficiaries Ear Candy and Phoenix Children's Hospital receiving 100% of the profits.

Check out the official lineup, and stay tuned for more announcements, including local acts that will perform at the festival.

If you haven't seen bob schneider I highly recommend it.


If you think Galactic, Keller Williams, DSO are bore fests, then you're just another dumb American who only likes mainstream(afraid to go searching for music on your own) crap music. Have fun sitting on your couch watching the X Factor, while us real music lovers have fun getting down!
