Foo Fighters' Cal Jam 18 is right around the corner, and to celebrate the impending all day rock fest, they've announced a very special pop-up taking place Sunday, August 26th at the Hollywood Palladium from 3pm-7pm. The event will be all ages and free. Get your tailgate on early and enjoy exclusive merch deals, photo opps with the throne and white limo, plus food and drinks and even more good times.
As a special offer only available at the pop-up, you can snag for $49 the newly announced General Admission Lawn Only tickets with no service fees courtesy of Harley-Davidson.
Tickets are also available at Ticketmaster.com and caljamfest.com/tickets. General Admission Lawn Only tickets will get you access to the mainstage LAWN AREA ONLY, Sun and Mountain stages, carnival rides and general parking. This year, Saturday ticket holders have the option to buy a Friday night ticket for $30 (plus taxes and fees). All camping packages include free entrance to the Friday Night Party with performances by Billy Idol, Bridget Everett, Mexrrisey, Cosmic Kahuna and more, plus first access to ride the rides and see the museum.
A year after the legendary debut weekend from which 30,000+ true rock believers have barely recovered... Cal Jam 18 is back for another weekend of joyful rock-n-roll abandon featuring 20+ bands on four stages this October 5-6, 2018. Promoted by Live Nation, the festival returns to Glen Helen Regional Park and Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA, for an even more monolithic second incarnation of what the Los Angeles Times cited as the reason fans "come to music festivals: to feel connection and catharsis."
The good times begin with the Friday night party on October 5th, where those with camping passes and Friday night tickets will be invited to kick off the festival with 80s punk legend Billy Idol. Also on the bill is Bridget Everett, the comedian who Jerry Seinfeld called, "one of the greatest live performers I have ever seen in my life,"and Mexico City's Mexrrissey, performing their set of Smiths and Morrissey cover songs in Spanish, Cosmic Kahuna, plus so much more. Friday night attendees will also have first crack at the carnival rides and the Rock-N-Roll Museum.
On Saturday, October 6th, Cal Jam will continue last year's tradition of a 12-hour rock extravaganza where anything can happen-literally anything: last year saw the likes of Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Rick Astley, Dave Koz, Liam Gallagher and more joining the Foo Fighters on stage (yes, all during the same show). Foo Fighters will close the proceedings with one of their traditional rock marathons, bringing back what Forbes called "another great rock and roll party from the band who does them better than anyone else today." And where last year's inaugural festival was the beginning of the Foo Fighters' Concrete and Gold Tour, this year's appearance brings it full circle as the tour's final show in the LA area.
