Foo Fighters already finished up a European festival tour in 2019. The Americans played at Sziget, Hurricane and SouthsideReading & Leeds and more. Recently, the American rock band revealed that we can expect a new record in a little while. On the other hand, Red Hot Chili Peppers are already confirmed for Pinkpop 2020 and Firenze Rocks 2020.

Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters are an American rock band from Seattle, formed in 1994. The group was founded by Dave Grohl, a true rock ‘n’ roll icon of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, after the dissolution of Nirvana and the death of Kurt Cobain. They released their eponymous debut album a year later, which received very positive reviews from the media. After 24 years, Foo Fighters have headlined every major festival around the world. Four of their albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album.
