A classic festival curated by the Toadies, Dia De Los Toadies will be returning on September 11th and 12th. Held in Fort Worth, Texas at the Panther Island Pavilion, the Toadies will be returning with their festival of good vibes, good beer and good music. Not only is this festival anticipated highly every year, but September 11th also includes the release party for a new Toadies album Heretics. Including some classic favourites by the Toadies to maintain their unique vibe, Heretics will also include some new tracks and covers.
The tracklist for Heretics is as follows:
1. In The Belly Of A Whale (New)
3. Beside You
4. Queen Of Scars (New)
5. Rattler’s Revival
6. Heart Of Glass (Blondie Cover)
7. Possum Kingdom
8. The Appeal

12. Send You To Heaven
Dia De Los Toadies is split into two days: acoustic night and rock show. The 11th will celebrate the release of Heretics a week before the album goes on sale. Sarah Jaffe arrives as a local musician from Dallas performing some acoustic solo work for acoustic night. The Toadies will also have their own “almost acoustic” performance at The Shack to try out some new styles and promote Heretics. Anyone who has purchased a Friday ticket or weekend pass to Dia De Los Toadies will receive a free signed copy of Heretics. Acoustic night will be something fun and different for Dia De Los Toadies and will allow fans to really enjoy the timeless music and get excited about new material.
September 12th is classified as the rock show. Spanning across two stages, the lineup this year consists of Burden Brothers, Local H, Holy Moly, Buck Pets, Sealion, Son of Stan, and Gollay. With musicians that are local to the area and some national acts picked by Toadies, this festival’s eighth year is sure to be incredible. Get ready to hear some classic Toadies vibes, celebrate local musicians and enjoy a festival of food and tunes.
Many of the acts such as Burden Brothers, Local H and Buck Pets have been supported and supporting Toadies for quite a while, feeding off mutual inspiration and collaborations. The excitement rises since all of these groups will come together once more to perform live, creating a truly incredible energy for fans of Dia. With Toadies on the Summerland tour until August 16th, they will reconvene at Dia De Los Toadies for the festival and the kickoff for the Heretics release. Dia is a celebrated festival with tons of things in store for this year, keeping fans hooked and ready to buy their weekend passes for September.
