Each year, Boston Calling usually unveils the performer lineup for its spring festival in January. But for 2020, organizers are intent to give it away, give it away, give it away a bit earlier than usual. Well, the headliners, at least.
Enter Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters.
Boston Calling this afternoon (November 13) unveiled two headliners for the May 22 to 24 festival at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston, several weeks ahead of its usual schedule. An additional headliner and more than 60 other performers will be unveiled in the New Year.
Last year’s Boston Calling was headlined by twenty one pilots, Travis Scott, and Tame Impala.
“Boston is such a great city for rock music, and we are so proud to bring some of the most important rock artists of all time to Boston Calling next Memorial Day Weekend,” says Boston Calling Events co-founder and CEO Brian Appel. “We have worked for years to bring the Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers to the festival, and this year everything lined up perfectly. We couldn’t be happier, and will complement them with an incredibly diverse lineup of artists throughout the festival weekend.”
A limited pre-sale opens Thursday (November 14), at 10 a.m. via bostoncalling.com. Tickets for this pre-sale are priced at $239 for three-day general admission; $549 for three-day VIP passes; and $1,049 for three-day Platinum passes.
