Many people consider the musical talents on display as enough live art for one event, M3F Fest doesn’t stop there though. Local artists will be in attendance and putting their creativity on display to the sound of the music filling the air. Even if you only attend one day, the whole weekend will be filled with unique displays of artwork being created right in front of your eyes. If you’re interested in taking some of the pieces home with you, discuss the purchasing options with the artist, as some of them will be available to be procured.
Few things will get you in the right headspace for this event quite like a guided yoga class. Before the music starts on Saturday and Sunday, you can visit the Oskar Blue Tent for a relaxing Yoga session from 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM.
In a celebration of music and local talent, Frank Thomson of AZ Rhythm Connection will be leading a drum circle. You’ll be able to get in the groove and enjoy this freeing group experience on two separate occasions both Saturday and Sunday.
On Sunday, the Kid Zone will be available for kids to play and experience unique opportunities designed for kids. Whether your child is looking for an escape from the crowd or you’re looking for family-friendly activities specifically designed for youngsters during the festival, this is the ideal destination for you. Child 10 and younger are admitted free to the event and are welcome to pop by the Kid Zone anytime on Sunday from 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM.
Have you ever been interested in experiencing a Silent Disco? Now is your chance! Grab a pair of headphones and come dance all night at the M3F silent disco both Friday and Saturday night.
There will be a wide array of local vendors and pieces of art from artists putting their talents on display and more. You’ll be able to find everything from one-of-a-kind pieces of apparel or custom artworks. Furthermore, you’ll be able to find the M3F Fest merchandise tent with all of the band apparel and festival souvenirs you could ever want.
Friday and Saturday don’t stop when the event closes for the evening. Attend the after-party that will be hosted by Justin Jay x Thumpasaurus as well as Young & Sick on Friday, or be sure to check out Saturday’s after-party with DJ sets from Phantoms and Crooked Colors.
