This year the McDowell Mountain Music Festival organizers are doing something different. They are hosting a Lineup Announcement Beer Bash. No finer words have been spoken into my ears (or actually, read by my eyes). The party is Decmber 13th at Copper Blues in Phoenix. Time: 7-12pm. Local bands will play (The Haymarket Squares and The Senators) and Deschutes beer will be poured. You can bet I’ll be there!
Festivarians are urged to buy their tickets before the lineup is announced to save some coin, because (as with everything) the closer to date the more it’ll cost ya’. Prices for general admission will start at $40 with plans to rise to about $65 at the gate in March, so those looking to buy tickets for the festival are encouraged to purchase today! Click here to buy.
In addition to buying early—because you know this is always a good time—the promoters are asking for participation in “Join the Party.” It’s a contest to get the word out to all your coolest friends so the even can keep going year to year. I can tell you for the multi-years I have been going the crowd is one of the coolest I have had the pleasure to party and dance with and the more of that the better. So, get yer network on!
This contest has some pretty rad prizes including VIP tickets, food and drinks. From their site here’s how it works:
Teams may consist of 8-10 members, with sales at a minimum of $5,000, to qualify for top prizes in association with the festival. The top 5 teams are eligible for prizes. The competition begins November 11th and continues until March 10th, 2015. Codes will be created and given to anyone purchasing tickets on-line in conjunction with these teams. Distribute your teams assigned code to as many people you can. In order for their purchase to count in your teams favor they must use the team’s assigned code.
