Dating back to 1993, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, White Zombie, Blink-182, No Doubt, have put on shows throughout the event’s twenty six year run. Attendees can listen to anything from reggae and hip hop, to heavy metal and punk rock music at the concert.
Presale tickets will be available on Thursday, May 2nd; general public tickets can be purchased Friday, May 3rd, directly on the KROQ Weenie Roast website. Proceeds benefit Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association, Heal the Bay and the Surfrider Foundation. The charities are geared toward helping in the protection of marine refuge, the park’s beaches, coastal cleanup, and watersheds.
