The mini-festival will come to an end directly before the Superbowl with music from Fall Out Boy and Jake Owen.

While we’re on the subject of the Foo Fighters, they recently made their live return to music earlier this month performing in Mexico on the 11th of December.
During their set they played songs by Tom Petty, Pink Floyd and The Beatles and recently Dave Grohl spoke about how the band were working on their new album and mentioned a 2014 release.
Speaking to Rolling Stone he said: “We’re writing the album in a way I don’t think has been done before.”
Dave Grohl also spoke about working with the Zac Brown Band with Rolling Stone and said: “They’re unbelievable,” he said of the group. “The band is so good they can be tracked live; we didn’t f*** with computers, we tracked live, four-part harmonies around one microphone.”
“It’s rocking. I didn’t know what [the band] was [prior to this]. People are like, ‘Oh, it’s country.’ ‘No, it’s not, it’s like the Allman Brothers.’ ‘No, it’s not, it’s jam band.’ I don’t even know what you would call it, it’s fucking great.”
