Boston Calling isn't messing around with its lineup this year.
The Massachusetts fest on Friday reveals its 2022 roster, with Foo Fighters, The Strokes and Metallica as the headliners, top-lining a lineup which embraces rock and alternative in a big way. Also on the lineup: Run the Jewels, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Weezer, HAIM, Avril Lavigne, Cheap Trick, Black Pumas, Glass Animals, Modest Mouse, The Struts, grandson, Orville Peck, Kennyhoopla, Japanese Breakfast, Cults and more.
Boston Calling had been unveiling its lineup in a series of rolling announcements over the past few months. Earlier this week, previously announced headliner Rage Against the Machine delayed their 2022 tour, which included dropping out of Boston Calling.
This year's lineup marks a notable switch following its last edition in 2019, which ventured far more mainstream with a more diverse musical palette, featuring the likes of Travis Scott, ODESZA, Anderson .Paak, Janelle Monáe, Clairo, Denzel Curry, Chromeo and more.
The 2022 edition is set for Memorial Day weekend (May 27-29) at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Boston. Tickets are on sale now.
