2013's Dia De Los Toadies moves to the Toadies hometown of Fort Worth the weekend of September 14, and will take place at Panther Island Pavilion. This year's show will kick off with an intimate evening with Toadies – flipped, stripped and deconstructed on the night of Friday, September 13 and will lead into a full day of music on September 14.
Now in its sixth successful year, Dia De Los Toadies has taken place at several venues around the state including Possum Kingdom Lake, where the festival was first held Labor Day weekend of 2008. The show was an incredible success, selling out in advance. The second Dia De Los Toadies took place at Rough Creek Ranch in Glen Rose and featured The Secret Machines, Bowling for Soup, Ben Kweller, Eleven Hundred Springs and of course the Toadies. The last three years, Dia De Los Toadies has taken up residence at White Water Amphitheater in New Braunfels. Last year's fifth anniversary festival featured the strongest lineup and for the first year, included a combination of performances by Texas and non-Texas acts such as: Mariachi El Bronx, Helmet and Riverboat Gamblers. Vogeler says "I dig the eclectic nature of our lineups. Each of us in the band picks music that we want to share with our fans, and each other. I love that you can hear some quiet acoustic stuff, some country-ish honkey-tonk stuff, and of course, lots of Texas rock and roll." With the lineups getting better and better every year, we expect the sixth annual festival to be DFW's best music festival of 2013!
