About Cal Jams of  1974 and 1978.
 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

California Jam, also known as Cal Jam, was a rock music festival co- headlined by Deep Purple and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, held at the Ontario Motor Speedway inOntario, California, USA, on April 6, 1974. It was produced by ABC Entertainment, Sandy Feldman and Leonard Stogel.[1] Pacific Presentations, a Los Angeles-based concert company headed by Sepp Donahower and Gary Perkins, coordinated the event, booked all the talent and ran the advertising. Don Branker[2] worked for Leonard Stogel and was responsible for concert site facilitation, toilets, fencing and medical. It attracted 250,000[2] paying fans. The festival set what were then records for the loudest amplification system ever installed, the highest paid attendance, and highest gross in history. It was the last of the original wave of rock festivals, as well as one of the most well-executed and financially successful, and presaged the era of media consolidation and the corporatization of the rock music

 

California Jam II, also known as Cal Jam II, was a music festival held in Ontario, California, at the Ontario Motor Speedway on March 18, 1978 and produced by Leonard Stogel, Sandy Feldman, and Don Branker.[1][2] More than 350,000 people attended. The event was promoted by Wolf and Rissmiller Concerts. The festival was a sequel to the original California Jam held in 1974.
