Storyline

On March 18, 1978, an estimated crowd of 250,000 gathered at Ontario Motor Speedway to witness an all day festival bringing together nine of the most popular hard rock acts at the time. They ranged from established hard rockers such as Aerosmith and Ted Nugent, the Latin sounds of Santana and up and coming acts in the form of Heart, Foreigner and Rubicon. This special is a condensed sampling of the events that occurred that day and not only shows many of the performers at their peak, but how the crowds were entertained between acts with skydivers as well as skateboarders performing on a very primitive half-pipe.

Cal Jam Rocked all day and night!!!
20 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was there. I remember pulling off I-15 at midnight only to see a sea of cars trying to get to the parking lot. The feeder roads became parking lots and we partied till dawn when we finally got into the speedway.

Some of the musical highlights: Aerosmith,Heart, and Santana.I didn't see any fights and the ladies were fun and on my shoulders! Furthewrmore, Dave Mason was choice.Ted Nugent went crazy and climbed on top of the speakers. Foreigner: I loved the song "Star Rider and "Cold as ice" came at sunset in waves. Tequila was shared by our neighbors who came for Santana.I was 19 yrs old and on top o'the world !!! Stevie Nicks also made an appearance. She's hot. Ask anyone... Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush made the evening hours lovely until we couldn't find our car. Until sunrise when we woke to find we were only 50 feet from it. Much fun stealing a bonfire from some swabbobulars..

Anyone have a copy (DVD) they'd sell me? keeper275@yahoo.com
