Imagine Dragons & Dave Matthews Band set to lead off Tampa’s 2023 Innings Fest

The Innings Festival returns to Tampa, Florida on March 18th and 19th, 2023, during the Grapefruit League Spring Training. Imagine Dragons and Dave Matthews Band lead off an incredible lineup of heavy-hitters. This double-header weekend promises no overlapping sets, so fans will be able to catch all of the live performances that they want. The festival will once again take place on the grounds of Raymond James Stadium — home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This expansive area provides plenty of room for all of the events and onsite parking.
