Boston Calling Music Festival announced the 2023 lineup today, which is full of heavy hitters. Foo Fighters co-headline the first night with Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The Lumineers headline Saturday along with Alanis Morissette (playing her first Boston show since 2012). Paramore ends the weekend on Sunday (the same weekend they play Atlantic City's Adjacent Festival) with Queens of the Stone Age. The Walkmen (who are reuniting for this first shows since 2013 this year), Bleachers, and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are also slated to play that day.
Foo Fighters have yet to play their first headline shows since the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins last March. Last month, the band said it would return “soon,” and that Hawkins will “be there in spirit with all of us every night.”
Boston Calling 2023 takes place May 26th-28th in Allston, Massachusetts. Tickets — including general admission ($299+) and VIP passes ($949+) — go on sale starting Thursday, January 12th at 10:00 a.m. ET via the festival’s website.
