One of the few all-day music events taking place outdoors during the winter months in the Lower 48, True Music is scheduled for Dec. 14 in Scottsdale at Salt River Fields At Talking Stick, the spring training home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies. Expect more artists to be announced.

“We are incredibly excited to bring this level of talent to Arizona,” festival founder Jarid Dietrich said.  “This first round of artists should give people a glimpse at the direction we are headed and the unique experience we want to bring to the state.”

What can you expect from the inaugural True Music Festival? That is, other than enjoying music while basking in Arizona’s December sunshine?  Multiple stages, for one, with organizers presenting national as well as local acts along with art installations, roving performers, vendors and more.
