PHOENIX — The Good Life Festival is set to return in November at its new home of Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek with iconic rock and roll band America headlining the event.

Along with America, which is on their 50th anniversary tour, the festival on Nov. 6 will also feature former lead guitarist of the Eagles Don Felder, The Guess Who, and Nate Nathan and the Mac Daddy-O’s.

Tickets can be bought online with prices beginning at $50 for general admission and between $75 to $95 for reserved seating. A $35 VIP upgrade can also be added which would give access to a separate bar and upgraded restroom facilities. General parking is $10 while premium parking is available for $40.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Oliver Patch Project, which empowers children battling cancer using patches that are sown on a jacket or bag. The Phoenix Theatre also benefits from the event, according to a press release.

Gates open at 2 p.m. with Nate Nathan and The Mac Daddy-O’s beginning the musical festivities at 2:45 p.m. America takes the stage at 7:15 p.m. to cap the event.

Prior to the music getting started, attendees can partake in wine, craft beer and bourbon tasting. Various food and drink options in addition to a boutique marketplace are also available.

It marks the 10th year for the festival, which draws an average of more than 5,000 guests each year, according to the release.

The new home of the event is just down the street from where it started at a resort community in Queen Creek.

The Good Life Festival has previously hosted the likes of the Beach Boys, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Doobie Brothers, REO Speedwagon, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and Styx, according to the official website.
