The March Means Music campaign in Downtown Phoenix has resulted in over 250 bands–spanning a wide spectrum of genres and tastes–playing to audiences at 165 music events over 30 days. From large-scale festivals like VIVA PHX and McDowell Mountain Music Festival to the Phoenix Chorale’s Desert Song Tour, The Music of Queen at Symphony Hall and so many more excuses to dance, jam and rock out, the biggest month of music in the Valley is bringing hundreds of thousands of music fans into the urban heart of our city.

The March Means Music fun continues this Sunday, March 22 at Civic Space Park when renowned DJs Zeds Dead, Hardwell, Robin Schulz, Route 94 and Lane 8 headline the inaugural Phoenix Lights Festival.

This new multi-stage festival experience will not only feature some of the biggest DJs in the world but will also include dozens of art installations, including an oversized light-themed work by artist Isaac Caruso that pays tribute to the infamous UFO sighting that happened across Arizona on March 13, 1997.

Co-produced by True Music Xperience and Relentless Beats, Phoenix Lights Festival is an 18 and over event. For up-to-date information or to purchase General Admission ($55) or VIP ($99) tickets visit phoenixlightsfest.com
