What is D.C. JAM 20?


After two years and 70,000+ served, Foo Fighters are bringing the JAM back from CAL to D.C.: This July 4, consider yourself Foo-rmally invited to an all-day all-night celebration of the 25th birthday of that first album that started it all—all at FedExField in Dave Grohl’s formative stomping ground.

That’s right, that Grohl one-man-band-demo-turned-platinum-debut-album came into this world July 4, 1995. And now 10 albums, no less than a dozen GRAMMYs and countless trips around the arena, stadium and festival stages of the world later, it’s time to join Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee in commemorating that milestone.

This daylong marathon of eating, drinking and rocking also features Chris Stapleton, Pharrell, The Go-Go’s, Band Of Horses, Durand Jones & the Indications, The Regrettes, Beach Bunny, Radkey and more music in the Good Times Zone.



Foo Fighters and the festival organizers are of course cognizant of the fact that everyone needs an occasional reprieve from the rock, and as such D.C. JAM will feature side attractions including a BBQ Competition, a Tailgate Party, Rides, Games, flappy guys and more to be added and announced as the date nears.


Not only will world-class grill masters be competing, there will be an opportunity for tasting. In addition to the BBQ, there will be plenty of food trucks and other options for all kinds of good eats!
