The Offspring will be the headliner at BFD 2016, so they are a no brainer for Weenie Roast. KROQ likes to put on a show that has crossover appeal. Which typically leads to a mix of harder alt rock and more alt rock pop acts. The Offspring will help attract the harder alt rock fans. Also playing BFD this year is Fitz and the Tantrums (KROQ favorites and Weenie Roast Alumni), Silversun Pickups (They have a new album and F&F has seen them at Weenie Roast a million times), The Wombats and The Strumbellas (We think these guys could be the next Lumineers). Those four bands are as good as gold to be at Weenie Roast 2016! That leaves us:
- Twenty One Pilots - KROQ listeners love these guys and they are sure to repay the love at the Roast.
- The Lumineers - Who are releasing a new record and will want said new music to be played on KROQ. Boom they're in.
- Miike Snow - These guys are having a great year thus far with their hit Genghis Khan. They're a great fit for the side stage headliner.
- X Ambassadors - Are played about every ten minutes on KROQ.. it would be a huge miss not to invite these LA natives to the party.
- Saint Motel - Another LA group poised for a great performance in front of the local crowd.
- The Struts - They've been getting a lot of attention lately! Great side stage opener
- Walk The Moon - Shut Up and Dance with them.. That is all!
- Weezer - These guys will show up to just about anything these days.
