Founded as  a roots/jam oriented festival, McDowell Mountain broke the mold two years ago in 2013 when it had The Roots and The Shins as headliners and moved to Margaret Hance Park from its previous Scottsdale location. In 2014 the festival went back to its jam roots with headliners Disco Biscuits and STS9 and in 2015 the headliners that included Passion Pit and Widespread Panic. This year’s lineup boasts indie/modern rock bands on Friday, EDM on Saturday and roots acts on Sunday.

Since 2004, the Festival has raised more than $1 million for charity. $120,000 was raised for charity during the 2015 festival.
