Boston Calling Announces Foo Fighters, Rage Against The Machine For ’22
Boston Calling has announced Rage Against The Machine and Foo Fighters for 2022, with the major outdoor festival returning Memorial Day Weekend May 27-29 with more than 60 artists including an additional headliner to be named later.
A limited number of early bird three-day tickets are on sale now.
Foo Fighters and RATM were to headline Boston Calling 2020, which, like just about every other concert event that year, was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Rage Against The Machine pushed its 2020 North America tour with Run The Jewels to 2022, but has been also announced for 2022 festival appearances including RBC Bluesfest in Ottawa and Festival dete de Quebec.
“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. 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,” said Boston Calling Events, LLC (BCE), co-founder and chief executive officer Brian Appel.
Boston Calling once again promises an exceptional experience, from its iconic mix of musical performances to its commitment to showcasing new forms of entertainment and extensive food and drink offerings. In 2022, the festival will expand its offerings in the VIP and Platinum tiers. An all-new VIP lounge will become an oasis within the festival featuring full bars and unique amenities. Fans can also expect newly enhanced viewing areas within the VIP and Platinum sections, including a new double-decker VIP experience offering dramatic views of both the Red Stage and Green Stage, and an expanded viewing deck within the Platinum section where food prepared by some of Boston’s best chefs will be served throughout each day. Platinum pass holders will also have access to a full specially-priced bar featuring premium beer, fine wine and craft cocktails; a daily gifting suite with complimentary products; and a complimentary parking pass for each day (3-day passholders only). More information on the festival’s VIP and Platinum experiences can be found at Boston Calling’s website. Details on the 2022 food and drink components in the GA, VIP and Platinum sections will be shared in the months leading up to the festival.
Boston Calling is produced by Boston Calling Events LLC (BCE), which is owned by Crash Line Productions and Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp.
The announcement comes as festival lineups are seemingly being announced by the minute, with varied types of events from Primavera Sound’s massive 2022 Barcelona lineup, Atlanta’s Shaky Knees topped by Stevie Nicks, Run The Jewels and the Strokes, as well as artist-curated events like Slipknot’s Knotfest Iowa for 2021. There’s even the touring “festival” such as Willie Neslon’s Outlaw Music Festival which includes Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Margo Price and many others starting in August.
