TrueDTPHX Blends Art, Music, Community
January 8, 2015 by Fara Illich
Experience the true downtown at TrueDTPHX, a free local music festival at Civic Space Park during 2015 Pro Bowl weekend, Friday, Jan. 23 and Saturday, Jan. 24.
In addition to beautiful weather, a vibrant art scene, breathtaking public spaces like Civic Space Park and top-notch restaurants, Phoenix boasts some of the very best local music. While our city sits under the spotlight during two major back-to-back sports events, let’s share a slice of the TrueDTPHX with visitors, loved ones, strangers and friends.
In addition to great live performances by Jared and the Mill, Luna Aura, Decker, Captain Squeegee and many others, Phoenix-based painter and designer Isaac Caruso will be constructing a visually stunning interactive art piece, with the help of the public.
As a means of connecting the community through art and music, True Music Xperience, the group behind 2013’s successful True Music Festival, and Downtown Phoenix Inc. developed a concept that really captures what locals love about their city – and brings it all together.
Featuring food trucks, local craft breweries, a solar powered stage and multiple composting and recycling vessels, TrueDTPHX is a festival for the people by the people.
So hop on your bike or take the light rail down to Civic Space Park Friday, Jan. 23 for a night of indie-pop and electronica from 7-10:30 p.m. and on Saturday, Jan. 24, don your dancing shoes for an eclectic mix of jam-rock and multi-genre music during a full day of family-friendly fun from 3-10:30 p.m.
