Foo Fighters hinted at the much-anticipated return of their self-curated Jam Festival back in February.

Dave Grohl and his bandmates held two editions of the festival in 2017 and 2018 in San Bernardino, California, where they shared the stage with Queens of the Stone Age, Cage the Elephant, The Kills and Iggy Pop with Post Pop Depression.

The band will now bring Jam Festival to Washington DC for a one-day event on July 4, during which they will also commemorate the 25th anniversary of their eponymous debut album.

In addition to the Foo Fighters, the inaugural edition of DC Jam Festival will include performances from Pharrell Williams, Chris Stapleton, Band of Horses, The Go-Go's and The Regrettes.

Durand Jones & The Indications, Beach Bunny, Radkey will also share the stage of Landover, Maryland's FedExField.

Foo Fighters also announced several activities that will delight fans of all ages, including a barbecue competition, a tailgate party, rides, games and more.

It is still unclear whether the band will debut some cuts from their long-awaited tenth studio album at their inaugural DC Jam Festival.

Last February, frontman Dave Grohl confirmed that the much-anticipated follow-up to 2017's "Concrete and Gold" was on its way.

"We just finished making a record. There's a riff on the new record that I've been working on for 25 f**king years -- first time I demoed it was in my basement in Seattle, and every record I'm like, 'Ooh, let's put it on,' but it didn't work," he told The Bill Simmons Podcast, without revealing an official release date for the full-length.

Ahead of DC Jam Festival, Foo Fighters will tour the same venues that they did on their first North American tour in support of their 1995 self-titled debut album.

The Van Tour will kick off on April 12 at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, with additional gigs in Oklahoma, Knoxville, Cincinnati and Cleveland.

While tickets for the Van Tour are currently available, passes for DC Jam Festival will go on sale to the public on Friday, March 6 at 10 am EST.
