Unlike festivals that rescheduled their 2021 editions to September and October, Boston Calling, which usually happens on Memorial Day weekend, wound up cancelling both 2020 and 2021 due to COVID, with a promise to return in 2022. They've now announced two of the headliners for their 2022 edition, which happens May 27-29, 2022 at Harvard Athletic Complex. Foo Fighters and Rage Against the Machine, both of whom were scheduled to headline in 2020, will return for 2022. They'll join 60 other still to-be-announced acts, and one more headliner.

"We couldn’t be happier to return in 2022 and deliver a full-scale festival with two of the world’s most celebrated rock bands as our headliners," Boston Calling Events LLC co-founder and CEO Brian Appel says. "We’ve spent the past year working on a festival that our fans can really look forward to, and we’re so excited to share more news and surprises as we get into next year."

Early bird tickets are on sale now, including a limited number of two-packs of three-day passes.
