Boston Calling Returns With Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, The Strokes King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard & More

Boston Calling is back and in all its musical glory. The renowned three-day musical festival is currently set to welcome the masses into Harvard University’s athletic complex this coming Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-29. GRAMMY Award winner Nine Inch Nails will close out the first night of the festival on Friday, followed by alternative rockers the Strokes on Saturday and rock & roll icons, Metallica, on Sunday. These three powerful rock bands will lead a lineup of over 50 performers, including the largest collection of regional talent ever to take the stage at Boston Calling, and an incredibly diverse mix of globally recognized music stars, including Rüfüs Du Sol, Weezer, HAIM, Glass Animals, Run The Jewels, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Avril Lavigne, Black Pumas, Modest Mouse, Goose, Cheap Trick, Oliver Tree, EARTHGANG, Orville Peck, The Struts, and many more.

Recently announced, the new, Tivoli Audio Orange Stage will be dedicated to local and regional music artists. Artists with local ties that are performing at the festival throughout the weekend will perform on the new stage. The Tivoli Audio Orange Stage joins the festival’s established Green Stage, Red Stage and Delta Air Lines Blue Stage. Among the celebrated acts from the region performing on the Tivoli Audio Orange Stage are Boston born and Burlington, VT based folk artist, Ali McGuirk; Brockton, MA’s electrifying rap collective, Van Buren Records; Boston Music Awards 2020 R&B Artist of the Year and Boston based Miranda Rae; and Boston’s own Aaron and the Lord, the talented indie rock duo with deep local music ties.

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. “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.
