Innings Festival announces dates for 2020 event in Tempe
PHOENIX – The Innings Festival, the Valley’s annual celebration of baseball and music, is taking another swing.
The festival, which is scheduled to coincide with spring training, is returning to Tempe Beach Park for a third year.
Organizers announced Tuesday that the 2020 version would be held Feb. 29-March 1.
It’s too soon for information about lineups, guests or ticket sales.
The festival debuted in 2018 as a three-day event with three stages. That year’s headliners were Queens of the Stone Age, The Avett Brothers and Chris Stapleton.
It was scaled back to two days and two stages in 2019, making it so only one performer was playing at a time. Incubus and Eddie Vedder topped the bill.
In the addition to music and food trucks, the festival features baseball-related activities, including batting cages, and guests.
This year’s guests included former major league stars Roger Clemens, Jim Thome and Matt Williams.
