***Official Innings Festival Tampa 2023 Thread***

When in Tampa have the world's best clam chowder at SHELLS on Dale Mabry. Their lobster bisque is no slouch either.

Sunday is:

DMB
Avett Bros
Marcus Mumford

    Anyone got a feel for how long the sets will be or have any experience with the event?

    I went to both days of this festival this year and it was great. Well organized and reasonable lines. Hoping for the same this year. Sets for Green Day and the Lumineers - the headliners - seemed like full sets. I believe they started about 830/845 and went until 11/1130. Green Day was probably my favorite concert of the year including 2 Dave shows. They put on an unreal show. (DMB shows were Tampa Pit and Saratoga Night 2 Lawn [long story on why only 1 night]). Sets for earlier performers were shorter as usual at these things. Parking is easy and plentiful (obviously it’s next to the football stadium). I assume Uber would be easy to the show but leaving could be usual headaches. We did the GA+ and it was well worth it. Pleasant sitting area and decent bathrooms. GA+ included free bottled water (it was the liquid death canned stuff) - not sure if that’s the case this time around. Happy to answer any other questions about the festival or where to stay in Tampa area, etc.. (Bern’s does rolling 60 day reservations in case you’re coming in Friday!)

    We will do this and take the kids. It will be a nice way to end their Spring Break.

    Trying to decide between GA and GA+

    Excited to make the trip down! Buying 1 day pass for Sunday. Pumped to see the Avetts for show #5 and DMB show #52! Mumford solo show and Third Eye Blind should be great as well!

    I think I remember it being kind of far removed from the stage last year. But sounds like there will be a dedicated area close to the stage this year. We’re going GA+ again.

    I went to Innings Festival in Tempe in 2020 (riiiight before COVID shut everything down; Orlando was not an option that year either), and had a great time. DMB put on a great show. Festival was well organized. Weather was fantastic. I love baseball, so meeting the players and tacking on a day to see some Spring Training games was a nice benefit.

    This is interesting. My 13-year-old son's favorite band is Imagine Dragons and there's never a bad time to see DMB.

    I will second this. It was a fantastic experience, no issues what so ever and very well ran.

    We did VIP and would do it all over again. Not sure if there is a map out or if it's going to be the same as last year, but VIP section is in the middle between both stages and there are bleachers pointed at each stage. In VIP, water (Liquid Death in cans, still and seltzer) was free and they never cared how many you grabbed. When we'd go up for drinks, whether or not we needed water we'd get one, and drink made sure to drink it, as it was a little toasty out. There was limited shade, only from the few trees and the backside of the bleachers, so bring a hat, concierge provided sun screen. We were in line to get into the venue for as soon as it opened for both days, and we were able to grab the comfy (moveable) chairs. Being able to move them was great for seeing both stages, though the tarp liner on the fence separating VIP from Platinum was as tall as the 6 foot fence, so couldn't see the left stage when seated.
    There were two food vendors inside VIP, and hardly ever a long wait, but the options are limited and better food was found in the GA area, which was a bit of a walk back and forth. Everything was cashless and cardless, you'd pay with your wrist band, so it was kind of annoying seeing 200 Paypal transactions come Monday morning. Having dedicated bathrooms alone was worth VIP. There was never, ever a line, and they were super clean. The staff was always around to monitor them and constantly cleaning and disposing of trash, during day 2 we heard of horror stories about the bathrooms overflowing in GA. They did run out of some drink items if I recall correctly early in the second day, IPAs ran out for sure. Near the end of night 2 from my experience they were just giving away booze and mixed drinks were 99% alcohol.

    For those that don't know, you can book hotels from the Innings website with great deals. They have a bunch to choose from with special rates for that weekend. I saved about 100 vs booking directly with the hotel.
