Boston Calling is BACK! After a two year hiatus, the festival is back and will welcome more than 50 artists to the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston from May 27 through 29. Along with several local artists, will be headliners Nine Inch Nails, The Strokes, and Metallica. “This year’s lineup is particularly special for us. It not only signifies a return to the things we love, but it also celebrates some of the world’s most renowned acts, exciting up-and-comers, and Boston’s talented music scene,” Boston Calling co-founder Brian Appel said in a press release. “Knowing how much Boston musicians endured during the pandemic, it was very important to us that Boston Calling 2022 shine a spotlight on local and regional artists more than ever before.”
