It’s a celebration of baseball and music, of food and friends, of good times and sunshine in Phoenix. It’s the first-ever Innings Music Festival, scheduled for March 23-25 at Tempe Beach Park in Tempe, AZ.
Held on the last weekend of spring training baseball here in the Phoenix, AZ Valley, the Innings Festival is jammed with some of the coolest rock ‘n roll bands, alt-country acts and much more. The music lineup is diverse, from the desert rock of Queens of the Stone Age to the lilting synth-pop of Sylvan Esso and the throwback Valley vibes of the Gin Blossoms. The festival’s three stages will feature great sets from more than 35 artists.This amazing 3-day event is the perfect weekend entertainment destination for fans of Cactus League Spring Training baseball here in the Valley.
The overall lineup looks incredible – headliners for the three days include Chris Stapleton, Queens of the Stone Age, and The Avett Brothers. Other well-known music acts appearing at Innings Festival are Counting Crows, The Decemberists, Gin Blossoms, Young The Giant, The Head and the Heart and more.
The promoters feel that that the combination of music and baseball is a natural for the warm spring days in the Valley, especially with thousands of visitors here to watch spring training games. Bringing together music fans with baseball fans on a weekend of music is a no-brainer.
But there’s a lot more than music happening that weekend. There will be fun baseball activities like batting cages, speed pitching, and appearances by top MLB baseball players. Plus, a huge food court will be on premises, featuring celebrity chef demonstrations, led by the Valley’s own Sanctuary chef, Beau MacMillan. He will curate the food at the festival and will lead food demos that highlight different baseball stars and musicians. With more than 20 food tents at the festival, as well as beer, water, and other refreshments, there will surely be enough for everyone!
