Boston Calling 2023 lineup (Foo Fighters, Paramore, QOTSA, YYYs, Alanis, Flaming Lips, National, more)
Boston Calling has announced its 2023 edition, happening on Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28, at Harvard Athletic Complex in Boston, MA. Foo Fighters headline on Friday (5/26); they were forced to cancel their 2022 set after drummer Taylor Hawkins' death, and they were originally scheduled for the fest's 2020 and 2021 editions, both of which were cancelled due to Covid. This is the first show the band have announced following Hawkins' passing; in a statement on Instagram, they promised fans they'd see them again "soon", and said "we know that we're going to be a different band going forward."
The Lumineers headline Saturday at Boston Calling, and Paramore headline Sunday (the same weekend they play Atlantic City's Adjacent Festival). The lineup also features Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Queens of the Stone Age, Alanis Morissette (playing her first Boston show since 2012), The National, The Flaming Lips, The Walkmen (who are reuniting for this first shows since 2013 this year), King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Maren Morris, 070 Shake, The Linda Lindas, Genesis Owusu, Brutus, Bleachers, Joy Oladokun, Celisse, Mint Green, and more. See the full day-by-day lineup below.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, January 12 at 10 AM.
