The Toadies are back September 12-13 with their seventh annual Dia De Los Toadies festival, starring some of Texas' top artists, including the Old 97's and the Toadies themselves.

For the second year in a row, the music festival will take place in Fort Worth, on the banks of the Trinity River at Panther Island Pavilion. Veterans may recall that in prior years it took place at Possum Kingdom Lake and at WhiteWater Amphitheater in New Braunfels.

Joining the Toadies and Old 97's are Austin rock trio Ume, Fort Worth blues rockers Quaker City Nighthawks, reunited Dallas quintet Pleasant Grove, roots rockers Somebody's Darling, Austin pre-teen rockers Residual Kid, Fort Worth garage rockers The Longshots and synth-punkers Blank-Men.

Opening night will be an almost-acoustic evening with the Toadies and Old 97's front man Rhett Miller. Saturday will be a full-out rock show, headlined by the Toadies. This year marks the 20th anniversary of their platinum-selling album, Rubberneck, which the band will play in its entirety during the show.

Food will be available via food trucks such as Bellatrino, So-Cal Tacos, Texas BBQ by Holy Smokes, Lee's Grilled Cheese, Bombay Street Food, Butcher's Son and Gypsy Scoops. The festival will also feature a beach area where fans can cool off by taking a swim or participating in tubing and paddleboard during the show.

Tickets are on sale now through Prekindle. For information on tickets, lodging and more, visit Dia De Los Toadies.
