“We are so thrilled to bring Boston Calling back, and we cannot thank our loyal fans enough as we navigated the pandemic,” said Boston Calling Events cofounder and CEO Brian Appel in a statement. “This year’s lineup is particularly special for us. It not only signifies a return to the things we love, but it also celebrates some of the world’s most renowned acts, exciting up-and comers, and Boston’s talented music scene.”
Boston Calling canceled both its 2020 and 2021 festivals because of the pandemic.
The Foo Fighters will headline the festival on Friday, the Strokes on Saturday, and Metallica will close out Boston Calling on Sunday.
On Thursday, Rage Against the Machine announced that it would no longer be headlining the 2022 festival. The band postponed all shows on the first leg of its upcoming tour, including the Boston festival.
