KROQ Weenie Roast, the scrappy-spirited rock festival produced early each summer for the last 20 years by LA rock station KROQ-FM, is estimated to kick off the season rather early in 2013. Not unlike last year, in which it fell during the Cinco De Mayo holiday and accordingly went dubbed as Weenie Roast y Fiesta, next year's fete is expected early in May.
A showcase of usually anthemic rock, KROQ's Weenie Roast has held court at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, and is probably destined to return there in the spring. A massively popular, more intimately billed festival than the Coachella behemoth in Indio, CA, Weenie Roast has spawned a few sister festivals: just north in the Bay Area with affiliate station KITS, and bouncing between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. on the East Coast with WHFS.
