Cal Jam Displays The Essence Of Rock Festivals
The Foo Fighters made sure Cal Jam 18‘ went down in history at Glen Helen Regional Park on Oct. 6th, 2018.
This marked the second time the Foos brought the rock and roll festival to San Bernardino. In the week leading into the festival, Dave Grohl kept teasing a Nirvana reunion without outright saying it. That came to fruition when Krist Novoselic, whose new band Giants in the Trees played earlier in the day joined Grohl and guitarist Pat Smear after the Foo Fighters concluded their set.
