MESA, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Mesa is hosting a brand new music festival that has a goal to help local bands and artists get the opportunity to make it big.
And for this highly-anticipated event, they got Columbia Records Executive and MTV Host Matt Pinfield to be the keynote speaker.
Pinfield is playing a big part in putting on The Mesa Music Festival.
"We wanna give these artists a chance, more of a chance to be discovered," said Pinfield.
In its first year, the festival will feature more than 200 artists, some from the valley, others from around the world. There will be two days of live music; November 13-15, and it's all free to the public. The artists will play in over a dozen venues in downtown Mesa.
