Foo Fighters, The Strokes and Metallica will headline the Boston Calling Music Festival for its planned 2022 event, which is slated for Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-29, at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston. The Strokes and Metallica replaced Rage Against The Machine at the top of the marquee, after it was announced Thursday that the influential rap metal band would no longer appear as scheduled.

Other top-line acts include HAIM, Weezer and Avril Lavigne.

The full Boston Calling lineup features 51 artists, 18 of which have ties to Massachusetts: Van Buren Records, Cam Meekins, Born Without Bones, Avenue, Ali McGuirk, Ripe, Crooked Coast, Aaron and the Lord, Miranda Rae, Coral Moons, Paper Tigers, Dutch Tulips, The Chelsea Curve, Frances Forever, Oompa, Julie Rhodes, Charlotte Sands and Cliff Notez.

Boston Calling did not respond to WBUR's query about why Rage Against The Machine had pulled out of the festival, though the band posted on social media that the entire first chunk of its spring tour had been canceled.

The COVID-19 pandemic precipitated the cancelation of the last two Boston Callings. The 2022 festival will be the first since 2019, provided the event goes on as planned.
