About


"Willie's picnic for a new generation" is how the Austin Chronicle described Dia De Los Toadies, an annual concert hosted by Toadies. Toadies guitarist Clark Vogeler says, "Dia keeps getting better every year. Last year's festival was without a doubt the best weekend of the year. It always feels like a big family reunion with a great soundtrack."

The Toadies 7th annual Dia De Los Toadies Festival returns their hometown of Fort Worth and to Panther Island Pavilion, on the banks of the Trinity River, nestled just north of downtown Fort Worth. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the Toadies platinum album Rubberneck, Toadies will play the entire album, beginning to ending. Dia De Los Toadies will be the last time the band will perform Rubberneck.

Now in its seventh 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 seventh annual festival to be DFW's best music festival of 2014!
