Preparing for Innings Fest 2020

Festival season has finally arrived, which means it is time to prepare for a glorious spring season of music in Arizona.

The Innings festival brings music lovers and baseball fans together for a two-day celebration of Spring Training on February 29 and March 1.

Located at Tempe Beach and Tempe Arts Park, the third annual Innings Festival will provide two full days of music, baseball and incredible food.

This year's headliners include The Dave Matthews Band and Weezer with appearances from MLB icons like Jake Peavy and Bret Saberhagen.

The festival features three stages and 18 performances for an experience that won't disappoint.

In between sets you can indulge in a variety of local food vendors, baseball activities and sponsor lounges.

Covering the festival this year will be my second time attending Innings and I can't wait to share my experience.

In honor of the season, I made a list of 5 necessities to survive a music festival.

​CamelBak Hydropak

The best gift I ever got was a CamelBak Hydrobak. The small backpack carries 50 ounces of water and is easy to fill up at any water station inside the festival.

Disposable Camera

As we all know, a camera is always nice to have on hand inside the gates of a festival. personally, I think the best type of camera to bring with you is a disposable, its more fun and much easier to haul around. You can buy a disposable camera at almost any grocery store or pharmacy. I often use the Fujifilm, you can buy a pack of 2 at Walmart for $15

Picnic Blanket

There is always one day of the festival that isn't as appealing as the others, so take advantage of that by packing a blanket to sit on and enjoy a relaxing day laying in the sun listening to new music.


One of the best parts of any festival is the food vendors, so spending your money on overpriced tacos will definitely be worth it. But for the time spent holding your spot in the pit I always pack some snacks from home. Nothing taste better than goldfish and pretzels when you've been sitting in front of a stage for four hours.

Portable Charger

Invest in a decent portable charger. It will make your festival experience a little less stressful when you have the ability to charge your phone in the middle of a set.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
