CalJam, the Foo Fighters-curated, Live Nation-promoted California festival which debuted last month, is to return for a second outing next October.

Inspired by Pacific Presentations’ California Jam – a one-off 1974 event headlined by Deep Purple and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, with the Aerosmith-headlined California Jam II following in 1978 – CalJam 2017 kicked off the US leg of the Foos’ Concrete and Gold world tour, with the band joined in San Bernardino on 7 October by Queens of the Stone Age, Liam Gallagher Royal Blood, Cage the Elephant, Wolf Alice and the Kills.

Frontman Dave Grohl suggested CalJam would return for a second year, and he’s as good as his word: Live Nation says CalJam 2018, which will once again take place at Glen Helen festival grounds, on 5 and 6 October, will include “another Friday night camping party followed by another Saturday 12-hour rock extravaganza: More fun, food, sun and sweat, more guitars and EVEN MORE GOOD TIMES.” (Emphasis theirs.)

No further information is yet available, although the promoter promises more details “will be announced as they are confirmed”.
