Here's the MLB-themed music festival lineup you've always dreamed of

You know how you can tell summer is just around the corner? People are planning Spring Training trips and music festival lineups are breaking the Internet every other day. That got us thinking that it's crazy that MLB has never held its own music festival to celebrate the greatest sounds the game has to offer. 

So, for your amusement, we went ahead and curated the most entertaining sounds of the game for the inaugural MLB Managerella Music Festival, a weekend of audible entertainment and low hygenic standards.* B.Y.O. glowsticks, y'all.
