Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age and more to play Cal Jam 17 at Glen Helen Regional Park – Orange County Register

In the spirit of its brand new, big-sounding ninth rock record, “Concrete and Gold,” which officially drops on Sept. 15, Foo Fighters announced a mega rock festival that will take place on Saturday, Oct. 7 at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino County.

The 12-hour event will be headlined by the Foo and also feature sets by Queens of the Stone Age, Cage the Elephant, Royal Blood, Liam Gallagher, the Kills, Babes in Toyland, Japandroids, Bob Mould, the Struts, Circa Waves, Fireball Ministry, White Reaper and many, many more. Cal Jam 17 will also offer on-site camping, carnival rides, a water park and various other attractions, a mobile recording studio and more.

Via a press release, Foo frontman Dave Grohl said the idea for the daylong festivities came from the original California Jam, a festival co-headlined by Deep Purple and Emerson, Lake and Palmer at Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario in 1974. The basic concept, he noted, was how to celebrate music and throw the ultimate “backyard party for 50,000 people.”
