Deftones set for second Dia de los Deftones fest at Petco Park
The Sacramento-based band Deftones will perform at San Diego’s Petco Park with Cvrches, Gojira, Brutus and two other acts
The Deftones are set to return to Petco Park’s Park at the Park, where the hard-rocking Sacramento band debuted its one-day Dia de los Deftones festival here last November.
The second Dia de los Deftones will be held on Nov. 2. That’s exactly a year and a day after the 2018 inaugural edition took place with a lineup that included Future and San Diego’s Rocket From The Crypt.
The lineup this time around at the Park at the Park will include the Scottish trio Chvrches, French heavy-metal band Gojira, Baltimore rapper JPEGMAFIA and Illinois alt-rock band Hum (whose 1995 song, “Stars,” was unexpectedly used in a 2008 TV commercial for Cadillac).
Rounding off the bill is Brutus, the Belgian post-hardcore trio led by drummer/singer Stefanie Mannaert, and Youth Code, a Los Angeles Electronic Body Music duo.
As was the case at last year’s Dia de los Deftones, the Deftones will be the headlining act at the all-ages event, which the band is also curating.
Or, as Deftones’ front man Chino Moreno explained in a Union-Tribune interview prior to last year’s first edition of Dia de los Deftones: “It’s like putting together a mix-tape, but it’s a live show and you can put different artists together in one live setting. ... It’s a well-rounded event that — even if we weren’t performing at it — I think we’d enjoy going to as music fans.”
Tickets for the second annual Dia de los Deftones will go on sale at Friday at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.com, with an online pre-sale starting at 10 a.m. Thursday.
General admission tickets are $75 each, plus service fees, the same as last year. That price increases to $85 for tickets bought on the day of the show.
VIP ticket packages range from $195 to $595 each, plus service fees, four dollars less than last year.
