DEFTONES singer Chino Moreno says of this year's 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."
Prior to last year's first edition of "Dia De Los Deftones", Moreno told the San Diego Union-Tribune: "It's like putting together a mix-tape, but it's a live show and you can put different artists together in one live setting... It's a well-rounded event that — even if we weren't performing at it — I think we'd enjoy going to as music fans."
DEFTONES have released eight studio albums to date and have sold over ten million albums worldwide. The band is vocalist/guitarist Chino Moreno, guitarist Stephen Carpenter, keyboardist/samplist Frank Delgado, drummer Abe Cunningham, and bassist Sergio Vega.
