Innings, M3F, Body Language, more

A month into the new year, we’ve already made it through the cancelation of one major music festival — Crush Arizona. 

But the Maine‘s third edition of 8123 Fest went off without a hitch at Margaret T. Hance Park on Jan. 22.

And festival season will be in full swing by early March, when M3F (or the festival formerly known as McDowell Mountain Music Festival) returns to Hance Park with Leon Bridges, Kaytranada, Jungle and many more taking part in a Valley tradition raising funds for local charities. 

Here’s the scoop on all the music festivals we know about at this point, from Crush Arizona and Innings Fest to Country Thunder and a new one from Relentless Beats called Body Language.

Innings Festival 

The baseball-themed festival is definitely swinging for the fences this year with a lineup topped by Foo Fighters and Tame Impala

The two-day event will feature 20 bands on two stages, including performances from the War on Drugs, St. Vincent, Billy Strings, Black Pumas, Caamp, Fitz and the Tantrums, Dashboard Confessional and local rocker Sydney Sprague, as well as curated food vendors and baseball-related activities. My Morning Jacket was originally scheduled to perform but dropped off “due to unforeseen logistical circumstances.”
