Scorpions and Megadeth to perform at “Fronterizo Fest” in Tijuana

Tijuana will become a mass haven for headbangers at Fronterizo Fest.

To be held Friday through Sunday, April 25-27, at Estadio Caliente — the stadium formerly known as Agua Caliente Racetrack — the heavy-metal marathon boasts more than two-dozen bands on three outdoor stages.

It culminates April 27 with Scorpions, Megadeth, and nine other acts, including Nukem, the El Cajon thrash-metal trio that won a Fronterizo battle of the bands. (Megadeth leader Dave Mustaineis a La Mesa native with a home in Fallbrook).

Mastodon, Gojira and Suicidal Tendencies headline Saturday, while Brazil’s Sepultura​​​​​​ tops Friday’s bill, the smallest of the weekend. A dozen house and techno DJs, including Pete Tong, will play on two indoor stages.
