KROQ Weenie Roast Y Fiesta 2015 is coming this Saturday! Each year, a massive sold-out crowd gathers to enjoy the coolest performers in music today. Not to mention, grabbing a hot dog and a cold beer on a warm, summer’s day in Irvine!
This year, plan on getting to the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre early for can’t-miss performances by some of the best up and coming bands today on the Bud Light Stage Dos. First band goes on at 2pm!
Many previous Bud Light Stage Dos performers have become huge in the music world, as well as headliners, including Foster The People, Grouplove, Of Monsters And Men, Awolnation, Silversun Pickups, Cage The Elephant, Neon Trees and more!
Get familiar with this year’s bands below. We promise it’ll be a great time.
Stage Dos from Bud Light, the perfect beer for whatever happens.
All Time Low may have been around since 2003, but 2015 marks the year that the band made their big break on KROQ with their song “Tidal Waves” (featuring Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus) off the band’s latest release Future Hearts. Hoppus even came out to perform the track with the band at their recent Palladium show.
The electronic project of producer Alan Wilkis continues to turn heads with the lead single “Dangerous,” which has been heard everywhere from Taco Bell commercials to the NBA playoffs to their appearance at the Sunset Strip Music Festival last year.
Saint Motel have paved the way for fellow Los Angeles bands, proving that hard work eventually does pay off. They’ve been a regular on KROQ Locals Only for a few years now, and their latest single “My Type” has helped bump them up into our regular rotation and solidified their spot at Coachella earlier this year.
Earlier this year British musician James Bay released his first studio album, Chaos and The Calm, which charted #1 in the UK and #15 in the US. It was the second single off the album, “Hold Back The River,” that helped Bay gain notoriety and a spot on the KROQ Weenie Roast.
X Ambassadors have taken notes after touring with bands like Imagine Dragons and Jimmy Eat World. They’ve appeared on tracks with Eminem and their new song “Renegades” is featured in Jeep’s latest commercial, as well as being a recent addition to the KROQ playlist.
