Avicii To Headline KROQ Weenie Roast

(Radio.com) Avicii has scheduled his first festival date since falling ill in Miami earlier this year - at a rock 'n' roll cookout. The EDM superstar has been announced as the headliner for the 22nd Annual KROQ Weenie Roast in Los Angeles on May 31, a show that traditionally features rock acts to top the bill. Headliners in recent years have included the Black Keys and Linkin Park (KROQ is a Radio.com station).

While Avicii has returned to the decks in the clubs of Las Vegas since recovering from surgery to remove his gall bladder and a ruptured spleen, the KROQ Weenie Roast appearance at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre will be his first large-scale festival appearance post-surgery.

The "Wake Me Up" DJ/producer's presence at the top of the KROQ bill has not gone unnoticed by some rock-leaning fans of the station, who've taken to social networks to question the booking. Read some of the mixed reaction here.
