This coming Saturday, Nov. 5, long-running alt/metal band Deftones will host its third annual Dia De Los Deftones festival.

Again taking place at Petco Park in San Diego (the home of Major League Baseball’s Padres), this year’s fest features a typically eclectic array of musical acts accompanying the iconic band, which released its latest album, Ohms, back in 2020 ahead of a triumphant tour this past spring.

Announced on Tuesday, Dia De Los Deftones 2022 will feature live performances from:

Deftones (obviously)
Freddie Gibbs
Audrey Nuna
Destroy Boys
Cold Gawd

Said Deftones main man Chino Moreno:

“We’re hyped to be bringing back Dia de Los Deftones this year. We take a ton of pride in curating it; it’s a chance for us to put forth and showcase some artists that we love and respect, and putting on an amazing day of music and culture for our fans. We’re excited to see everyone again out at Petco in November.”

Ticktets for Dia de los Deftones 2023 will start at $79.50 and will go on sale via Ticketmaster starting Aug. 5.

This total adherence to themselves has earned Deftones an undying fan base, and a portion of that audience packed the Greek — a good percentage of which were proudly wearing Deftones shirts, hats, jackets and the like. Moreno frequently thanked the audience for its support, at one point even saying the love from crowd to stage was “reciprocal.”

The enthusiasm was undeniable, and Deftones — flanked for this tour by bassist Fred Sablan, filling in for Sergio Vega, who split from the group recently, and secondary guitarist Lance Jackman — rewarded the crowd with a wide-ranging set list of songs showcasing each of their nine studio albums.
