The first Innings Festival took place in 2018. Since it received positive reviews and good attendance, it returned in 2019. It takes place over two days in Tempe, Ariz. at the Tempe Beach Park right after the Major League Baseball spring training season has begun. Those who are baseball fans can turn it into a vacation by taking in a few performances as well as a few games. Most of the music performed falls into the rock music category.
The Best of Two Worlds: Baseball and Music
MLB has figured out a way to engage baseball fans and music fans in one event with the Innings Festival. The artists who perform offer younger and older generations something they will enjoy listening to at least one of the many stages set up throughout the outdoor venue. If you are already in the area for spring training, you can take some time off from watching your favorite baseball team train and play to listen to some music. Fifteen MLB teams train in and near the Tempe area including the Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians as well as the San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. The first spring training games are usually played the last week of February or the first week of March.
