The Foo Fighters have revealed the lineup for Cal Jam 18, their self-curated festival set for October 5 and 6 at San Bernardino, CA's Glen Helen Regional Park & Festival Grounds. So will Australia's finest Gang Of Youths, along with Manchester Orchestra, Deer Tick, Metz, and Black Mountain.

The festival kicks off Friday night with Billy Idol, comedian Bridget Everett and Mexico City's Mexrrissey, performing their set of Smiths and Morrissey cover songs in Spanish, among others. Once again, the Foo Fighters are headlining, and they go on right after an "exclusive one-off reunion" from the legendary Iggy Pop and his Post Pop Depression band, which features Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme & Troy Van Leeuwen, and Arctic Monkeys' Matt Helders.

Last year, Foo Fighters helped revive the long-forgotten California Jam festival that took place back in the '70s. You can purchase tickets here this Thursday, May 17 at 10 AM PST.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD Renewed For Season 6
Season 6 is happening, much to the delight of fans who have stuck with the series through its rocky ride. The fifth season was also a mid-season premiere, having premiered in December of 2017.

In addition to the full day of rock, the festival will include a number of activities open to attendees. Visit the festival website for more information.

The festival will also feature a Rock-N-Roll museum, pop-up record shop, curated food trucks, traditional festival food, and a hillside full of what organizers describe as "flappy guys" which we can only assume are those nightmarish flapping arm fellows most often associated with used vehicle lots.
