The “KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas” will return on Dec. 10 for its 30th edition. Set for the KIA Forum in Inglewood, CA, performers include Imagine Dragons, the Black Keys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Death Cab for Cutie, Jimmy Eat World, Yungblud, Måneskin, the Interrupters and Wet Leg. It also marks a lineup curated by Kevin Weatherly, who returned to the station in June as SVP of programming following two years at Spotify, where he held the position of head of North American programming.
“When Kevin Weatherly returned earlier this year, one of our main priorities was to put this iconic event back on the calendar,” said Jeff Federman, regional president for Audacy Southern California. “Since the inception of Acoustic, Kevin has been the driving force behind its unparalleled success.”
