Foo Fighters announce the return of Cal Jam in 2018

In case you didn't get enough of the Foos at this year’s Cal Jam, it has been confirmed that fans will have another chance next year. Foo Fighters announced that they will be hosting Cal Jams again next year on Oct. 6, 2018, at Glen Helen Regional Park & Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, Calif. After seeing the success of this year’s festivities, the Foos decided to bring it back again and besides Foo Fighters, the line-up is still anybody’s guess.

This year, Cal Jam surprised fans with an eclectic line-up which included Queens of the Stone Age, Japandroids, and Liam Gallagher. As if that wasn’t enough, the Foos “rickrolled” the entire crowd with a surprise rock-infused performance with Rick Astley of his hit single “Never Gonna Give You Up.” The band also performed alongside Gallagher and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry to perform the Beatles classic “Come Together.”

The Foos brought back Cal Jam from the 1970s where it had seen significant success only to fade and be lost to larger, more prominent festivals over time. Originally conceived as the album release party for the Foo Fighters’ latest release Concrete and Gold, frontman Dave Grohl envisioned something more and decided to bring back the festival. Now, it seems that as long as fans are digging it the Foos will keep bringing it back.
