PHOENIX – A music festival benefiting veterans is making its return to Scottsdale.

The eighth annual Jetaway Music Festival will take place on Nov. 8 at the W Hotel.

The 21-and-up event will be headlined by Grammy Award-winning artist Nelly and will also feature EDM DJ trio Cheat Codes and country music star Dylan Scott.

“We mixed country with pop, dance and rap performances by design to truly make this something people ages 21 to 81 will want to support,” event co-founder Dillan Micus said in a press release.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Folds of Honor, a nonprofit that provides educational scholarships to children and spouses of fallen and disabled service members.

Aside from live music, the event will feature a live auction, photo booth, dancing and culinary creations from the hotel.

General admission tickets are $35, which includes entry and access to general areas only. VIP tickets are available for $150 and include VIP areas, three drink tickets and select food. Guests also have the option of purchasing table packages.

The festival will run from from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.
