What’s Going Ahhhn…Festival Guide

There are four event that are considering themselves festivals this weekend and I have included all four below. Unfortunately, I didn’t get this out earlier, but my best advice is to head to Bisbee right now, leave work if you have to and don’t look back. Anyway, here are the festivals and their lineups for this weekend.

When & Where: Friday, November 13th-Sunday, November 14th, Bisbee, AZ
Reasons to Attend: This has already kicked off, but it’s the best of the best. I have included the lineups below with the official images from the event site. Seriously, it’s amazing.
Other Details: The 4th Annual Sidepony Express Music Festival is a 3-day Independent/Alternative music festival in Bisbee, AZ. Like a mini-SXSW, it takes place in multiple venues all at once across a walkable district. In beautiful Old Bisbee, this 1/2mi of scenic Victorian mining town offers wide-ranging musical genres united by originality and heart. New bands every hour all over every space in town for the entire weekend. Free and open to the public. Featuring over 80+ bands at 16+ venues, artists come from all over the Southwest and well-beyond.
FRI NOV 13th @ 10am – late
SAT NOV 14th @ 10am – late
SUN NOV 15th @ 10am – reasonable o’clock

When & Where: Saturday, November 14th, 3pm at Culinary Dropout at the Yard
Reasons to Attend: This appears to be a mini-festival to announce the lineup of a big festival and one of my favorites of the year. It starts early and ends early, but they have five of my favorite acts in the city, so it’s definitely worth your time.
Other Details: Join Team M3F for our 2016 Lineup Announcement Event on November 14th at The Yard on 7th Street. In part of the 3rd annual Yardstock Music Festival, the night will be filled with eats by Culinary Dropout, brews by Oskar Blues, and tunes by our favorite local groups. Bands start around 3:30 and go till 11 PM.

When & Where: Saturday, November 14th, 11pm at ThirdSpace, Phoenix
Reasons to Attend: This annual gathering in the Grand Avenue Arts District is always tons of fun and the center of it is the great music coming out of ThirdSpace. Check out the lineup below, it’s always a great time.

When & Where: Friday, November 13th to Sunday, November 15th, Downtown Mesa
Reasons to Attend: This wild and weird event is spread across all of downtown Mesa. I will be dropping in throughout the weekend to check it out, because I am more fascinated by how this is actually going to play out than anything else. Look through the lineup below, it’s pretty impressive for the amount of bands alone. I hope they have a map at the event with the lineup, because otherwise this will be fucking chaos. Also parking, a map for parking might be nice. I’m also pretty curious about who the “Special Guests” might be in various headlining slots. I didn’t include Friday, because it seems to be a bunch of seminars and addresses, but check out what’s in store for the weekend below.
Other Details: Here is the lineup of all the acts for Saturday and Sunday. For further information check out http://www.mesamusicfest.com/
