Deftones have endured over the span of the past two decades-plus, withstanding the rise (and fall) of nu-metal and all that entails with a fiercely unique sound and drive all their own — and as a result the band’s fan base is as strong as ever.
On November 2, Deftones will host Dia De Los Deftones, the second-annual festival put together and headlined by the band. It’ll take place once again at Petco Park in San Diego, California, the home of the Padres. The news was dropped on Monday, along with the details and participating acts:
It’s with great excitement that we announce the return of #DiaDeLosDeftones to Petco Park in San Diego, CA on November 2nd. Another diverse & incredible line-up of artists will be joining us for the second annual celebration of music and culture. Tickets on sale Friday @ 10AM PT. pic.twitter.com/KOZmOWdEtM

Deftones will also take part in the Pasadena Daydream festival on August 31, alongside Pixies and the Cure, among other acts.
That is a pretty eclectic lineup of bands accompanying the Deftones, whose most recent studio album was 2016’s Gore. Said front man Chino Moreno in a statement about the lineup:
“In our second year of our festival, the exciting challenge for us is to make sure we once again give the fans a wonderful day of music that reflects the diversity of our own tastes. Each artist fits a different vertical of the music that we all love. There is truly something for everyone.”
