Dave Grohl & Krist Novoselic Announce Huge Show With Josh Homme


Foo Fighters’ Cal Jam 2018 Music Festival will return on October 5th-6th, 2018 at the Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, California. The first festival was held last year with Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Liam Gallagher, and other big names performing.

Foo Fighters will headline, along with Iggy Pop and and Post Pop Depression featuring featuring Queens of The Stone Age members Josh Homme, Dean Fertita and Troy Van Leeuwen and Arctic Monkeys’ drummer Matt Helders. Other notable acts include Tenacious D, Garbage, Billy Idol, and Greta Van Fleet.

The Front Bottoms, Deer Tick, METZ, Black Mountain, Silversun Pickups, Manchester Orchestra, Gang of Youths, and more. Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic will perform with his new band Giants in the Trees, and there will also be a set from Mexican Morrissey covers band Mexrrissey.

With Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Butch Vig in the house, it will be a rare time fans can see the surviving team behind Nirvana’s Nevermind live at the same show.

In addition to the full day of shred, the festival will include a number of activities open to attendees. Campers will be treated to outdoor midnight movies and access to the water park. As well as the newly christened Friday Night Comedy Tent curated by comedian Tim Hanlon (aka Dave’s cousin). Stay tuned for the full schedule to be announced! All ticket holders will be able to enjoy the site’s free carnival rides, the Rock-N-Roll museum, pop up record shop and a hillside full of flappy guys. Because we can. For those who are looking to imbibe in tasty eats and cold drinks, Cal Jam 18 offers a wide variety of curated food trucks, traditional festival food, and all sorts of delicious cold beer.
