Innings Festival 2024 Doubles the Fun: Two Stellar Weekends of Concerts Set to Rock Tempe

Imagine a warm, sun-drenched weekend in Tempe, where the electrifying energy of a baseball game meets the pulsating rhythms of live music. That’s exactly what’s on offer at the Innings Festival 2024. For those of you who haven’t heard yet, let me take you on a little journey to what promises to be one of the most uniquely enjoyable weekends of the year.

Set against the scenic backdrop of Tempe Beach Park and Arts Park, the festival is a perfect harmony of music and baseball, coinciding with the Cactus League spring training. This isn’t just a festival; it’s a celebration of two of America’s greatest pastimes, merging the thrill of a home run with the euphoria of a live concert.

Let’s talk music. The first weekend (February 23-24) is like hitting a musical jackpot. Think of swaying to the eclectic sounds of the Red Hot Chili Peppers or getting lost in the soulful melodies of Hozier. Add to that mix the energy of Greta Van Fleet, the rhythm of Macklemore, the nostalgia of Third Eye Blind, and a special hometown performance by Jimmy Eat World. It’s a lineup that screams diversity and promises something for every music taste.

But wait, there’s more! The following weekend (March 1-2) brings the inaugural Extra Innings Festival. It’s like the encore you always hoped for but never expected. Chris Stapleton’s raw, powerful voice and Dave Matthews Band’s legendary performances are headlining this round, accompanied by the likes of Turnpike Troubadours, Noah Kahan, and Sheryl Crow. From country twangs to rock anthems, the variety is simply astounding.

Now, onto the baseball side of things. If you’re a fan of the sport, prepare to be starstruck. The festival is set to feature appearances from MLB legends like Matt Kemp and Luis Gonzalez. Imagine sharing the same space with these icons, absorbing their stories, and celebrating the sport you love.

And for those special touches – we have “Off the Mound with Ryan Dempster,” a talk show bringing together artists and MLB stars for interviews and performances, right there on the Left Field Stage. This is where sports and music narratives intertwine, creating unforgettable moments.

Innings Festival 2024 isn’t just an event; it’s an experience. It’s where memories are made, where the love for music and baseball merge into a weekend of pure joy. Whether you’re there for the home runs, the headliners, or just the happy vibes, this festival is set to be a grand slam!

So, are you ready to step up to the plate and dive into this extraordinary blend of music and baseball? Grab your tickets, pack your enthusiasm, and join us at Tempe for what promises to be an unmissable event. Let’s make some noise, both for the crack of the bat and the beat of the drum!
