ABOUT

SEPTEMBER 25 – 28 2014

Maximum Ames Music Festival is a four-day celebration of music and culture that will take place at dozens of venues all over Ames. The festival will feature acts from Iowa and the Midwest as well as excellent nationally prominent touring acts. The goal of MAMF is to fill Ames with music for full weekend and give a boost to the local economy by hosting shows in many different venues and in multiple cultural districts throughout the community. We are eager to foster collaborations between artists, businesses and organizations to create a unique and exciting event that celebrates Ames and maximizes our cultural potential.
