Foo Fighters, Billy Idol, Greta Van Fleet To Play Cal Jam 18
Another weekend of rock and roll abandon curated by the Foo Fighters? Yes, please.
Following 2017's installment, which made believers out of 30,000 music fans, the Foos have announced Cal Jam 18, which promises rock and roll shenanigans with more than 20 bands across four stages coming Oct. 5–6 to San Bernardino, Calif.
On Oct. 5, the lineup will feature Bridget Everett, the comedian Jerry Seinfeld called "one of the greatest live performers I have ever seen in my life," Mexico City's Mexrrissey, who will perform a mix of covers of songs by the Smiths and Morrissey in Spanish, and punk-rock legend Billy Ido.
Dave Grohl & Co. will headline Saturday, Oct. 6. Also performing that day will be Iggy Pop, who will join his all-star Post Pop Depression band featuring Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme and Arctic Monkey's drummer Matt Helders, among others. The Saturday lineup will be rounded out by GRAMMY winners Tenacious D, Garbage, Greta Van Fleet, Silversun Pickups, and Giant In The Trees, Nirvana alum Krist Novoselic's new band, among others.
