Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers Headlining Boston Calling 2020

Boston Calling music festival has revealed Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers as two of its three headliners for the 2020 edition.

The three-day festival is set to take place at the Harvard Athletic Complex in the Allston, Mass. neighborhood from May 22-24.

“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,” said Boston Calling Events, LLC co-founder and CEO Brian Appel in a release. “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.”

The two headliners will lead a lineup of more than 60 artists, including an additional headliner, over Memorial Day Weekend. The festival is expected to release its entire lineup in January.


In 2019, Boston Calling welcomed Twenty One Pilots, Tame Impala, Greta Van Fleet and more to the stage.
