Innings Festival Florida, an event that combines music and baseball, made its inaugural debut in Tampa last year. It’s returning to the grounds of Raymond James Stadium on March 18-19, with headliners Imagine Dragons and Dave Matthews Band.
Weezer, Pitbull, The Avett Brothers, Marcus Mumford, The Revivalists and Japanese Breakfast are also on the 15-artist lineup. The bands perform over three stages with no overlapping sets.
The festival produced by C3 presents is held in conjunction with the Florida Grapefruit League’s spring training. It features family-friendly baseball-themed activities, like appearances from Major League Baseball players including John Kruk, Wade Boggs, Goose Gossage, Cecil Fielder and Rafael Furcal. There will also be a live taping of “Off the Mound With Ryan Dempster,” an on-site talk show featuring MLB players and musicians.
Tickets go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. at inningsfestival.com/florida/tickets. VIP packages are available. Kids 7 and younger get in free with a ticketed adult.
