Flagstaff Music Festival returns to the stage: An event to highlight the city’s unique music culture
After an eight-year hiatus Flagstaff Music Festival is tuning up for a return show at the historic Orpheum Theater.
Back in 2002, founder Mike Taylor was returning from a trip to Telluride Blues & Brews festival and started thinking Flagstaff should have an annual event to celebrate its diverse music scene.
“I came up to Flagstaff to go to NAU back in 1980 and I’ve always been impressed by the live music scene,” said Taylor. “I have seen some amazing musicians and I’m just so impressed by the professionalism, and creativity, and the variety of music. Flagstaff has something for everybody.”
What started as a concert with three bands over the years has grown to encompass a full day of performances from eight different performers, local artist displays, food vendors, and brew pours all to benefit one of the city’s many non-profits.
This year’s beneficiary is Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy (FALA). FALA’s mission is to pursue excellence in the arts while preparing students with skills necessary to succeed in
“I would like festival goers to come and have a great time, and know that Flagstaff has a thriving music scene,” said Taylor. “I also want to be sure that we’re taking care of local musicians and
getting their music out there.”
