From 9:30 Club:

“Let this sentence serve as a “pinch to the arm” of sorts to let you know that the above artwork is indeed real. We know it’s 7am; you’re NOT dreaming! In celebration of Foo Fighters’ 20th Anniversary, Dave and the boys are bringing together so many of the groundbreaking American acts featured in their HBO docuseries, Sonic Highways, for one big 4th of July jamboree at RFK Stadium. Beyond the absolutely insane lineup, the all-day extravaganza features fireworks, a motorcycle rally, BBQ, and so much more. Long story short: You spend your 4th of July with the Foos and friends… you have your life rocked by maybe the best concert you’ll ever attend.

20th Anniversary Blowout!
with Buddy Guy • Gary Clark Jr. • Heart • Joan Jett • LL Cool J feat. DJ Z-Trip • Trouble Funk • Trombone Shorty
@ RFK Stadium • Washington, D.C.

  • This is awesome. I’m not even a big Foo Fighters fan, but big concerts at RFK are always awesome, and it’s been years since they’ve held one there.

  • Does anyone know if it will be in the stadium or in the parking lot like the chili cook off concert?

    • It’s gonna be inside the stadium. It’s been a really long time since there’s been a huge show inside the stadium, and this could very well be the last one. There were some truly historic concerts held there, Beatles, Grateful Dead, etc., not to mention all the great HFStival shows over the years. I’m really looking forward to it. Especially since the place will be imploded in a few years, once the DC United stadium is ready.

    I like the Foo Fighters, but that lineup hardly screams “best concert I’ve ever attended”.

    • Gary Clarke Jr. is kind of a badass, google him. Heart is pretty cool they’ll definitely cover some Zepp, Joan Jett = ROCK GODDESS, I’ve only heard good things about Trombone Shorty, who doesn’t like LL Cool J?, and the one and only Buddy Guy! Maybe not best concert ever (to each his own) but a solid line up nonetheless, I was kinda hoping for a Bad Brains showing….

      • Well my take on it is this:
        “Heart is pretty cool” – that hasn’t been true since the 1970s.
        Joan Jett = can anyone name more than one song she’s done? Also hasn’t been cool since the 80s.
        Trombone Shorty, I’ve heard good things about them too.
        Who doesn’t like LL Cool J? Uh, me.
        Gary Clarke, Jr. and Buddy Guy? I’m not really into blues if I can’t see and hear it up close.
        I wouldn’t describe it as a solid lineup, but if you really want to go to an all-day show, and/or if you like the Foo Fighters then it will probably be good.

        • Um., Gary Clarke Jr. is the one of the best guitarists of his generation. Just calling him a blues artist is not really accurate. He plays blues and rock with equal aplomb.

          Buddy Guy is a fricking legend.

          Trombone Shorty is a he, not a them.

          You really need to hit up a search engine and do some research before you comment on some of these acts.

        • Heart is way cooler than you or I will ever be or ever think of being. Joan Jett, I love rock n roll, cherry bomb, i hate myself for loving you, crimson and clover (cover), runaways, (I can’t help the fact that you know nothing) she’s probably the hottest chick in rock n roll to this day. LL Cool J, if you don’t like him then oh well, judging by your other opinions it doesn’t surprise me. I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to hear Gary Clarke jr play the frickin shit outta his guitar at this show. He’s kind of a cross btwn Hendrix and SRV (you probably don’t know SRV either and that’s not shocking). Buddy Guy = Legend and if you’re not into legends then wow.

          you should change your name to a millennial

        • you’re right Heart isn’t cool, they only got selected to play for Led Zeppelin at the Kennedy Center honors, only uncool people get to do that like Heart, Foo Fighters, Lenny Kravitz, some reeeeeal losers.

      • Without a doubt, it’ll be the last great festival show at RFK. And who knows, we could see a few surprises, maybe Bad Brains or a Fugazi reunion?!?!

      The point is to hit an artist from every city featured on Sonic Highways on HBO. Grohl personally invited chosen artists to join the concert.
