A new festival in Tempe, Arizona aims to celebrate both music and professional baseball’s annual spring training.
The Innings Music Festival is scheduled for March 23-15 at the Tempe Beach Park & Arts Park. It’s being put on by C3 Presents, the people behind Lollapalooza and the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
The lineup hasn’t been announced, but organizers have said more than 36 acts will perform on three stages. There also will be culinary demonstrations with top chefs, food vendors, family events and appearance by professional baseball players from a handful of teams.
The Innings Festival wants to attract music lovers and baseball fans from Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Oakland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Texas to watch their favorite teams go through Arizona Spring Training.
The rain-or-shine all-ages festival will run from 3 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday and 1:30 to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
More information, including tickets and pricing, is expected to be released soon. Children 7 and under will get in free.
Organizers have said that due to increased concerns about security at festivals around the country, security guards will conduct full-body pat-downs and bag searches before entry.
