Oh wait, they just got handpicked by the Foo Fighters to play their United States festival.

The festival will take place on Saturday, 10/6 (with the Idol show the night before on 10/5).

Also on the bill are the Jack Black-fronted purveyors of "The Greatest Song In The World" - Tenacious D and Shirley Manson-fronted alternative pop-rock icons Garbage, celebrating 20 years of their sophomore release Version 2.0.

Media said one attacker may have had a bomb strapped to his body but police did not immediately confirm the reports . They followed a deadly prison riot staged by Islamist prisoners at a high-security jail near Jakarta last week.

The festival will also include a number of activities open to attendees: Campers will be treated to outdoor midnight movies and access to the water park, a Friday night comedy tent, free carnival rides, a Rock-N-Roll museum, pop up record shop and a wide variety of curated food trucks, traditional festival food, and, according to the announcement, "all sorts of delicious delicious cold beer". Stay tuned for the full schedule to be announced!

The fest also includes Tenacious D, Garbage (whose Butch Vig goes way back with Dave Grohl to when he produced Nevermind), Silversun Pickups, Manchester Orchestra, The Front Bottoms, Black Mountain, Deer Tick, Gang of Youths, METZ, Anna Von Hausswolff, Dave Grohl's former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic's band Giants in the Trees, and more.

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 auto lots.

Last year's festival saw Liam Gallagher, Queens Of The Stone Age, Wolf Alice and more play.
