Nine Inch Nails will replace Foo Fighters as the Friday night headliners at Boston Calling. The Foos have canceled all activity following the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins.  This marks Nine Inch Nails’ first time on the road in four years.

As previously announced, the Saturday of the festival will be headlined by The Strokes and by Metallica on Sunday. The headliners will lead a strong lineup of both regional acts and globally recognized music stars. Performances at Boston Calling will include sets from 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 more.

Boston Calling recently announced a new stage, the Tivoli Audio Orange Stage, specifically dedicated to performances by local and regional music artists.
