Phoenix’s Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) launched its first music festival, MIMFest, last year to much success. The two-day event is back on Nov. 7 and Nov. 8 with a fresh lineup of international, national and local acts performing on three stages. MIM was founded with the intent to preserve and share music from around the world and MIMFest shares a similar purpose. The full schedule and lineup will be released soon, but the event is set to include 20 musical performances by  Ozomatli, The Recycled Orchestra, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, TriBeCaStan, Quetzal, Jaron Freeman-Fox, Victor Wooten, Martha Redbone, The Jones Family Singers, Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra, Run Boy RunThe Sugar Thieves and more TBA.

“There will be a variety of local musicians, dancers and artists to enhance the experience, including a samba group, aerialists, a Dixieland band and participatory rangoli art. Guests of all ages will also enjoy complimentary face painting, henna art, acoustic instrument demonstrations and craft activities,” reads a press release.

Tickets are on sale now, available through, (480) 478-6000 or at MIM’s guest service desk. Admission on the day of the event will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Museum galleries will be open during the event, but MIMFest tickets do not include museum admission.
