Rage Against The Machine Will No Longer Be Playing 2022 ‘Boston Calling’ Festival


The reunited Rage Against The Machine‘s 2022 touring plans continue to shift after two years of the COVID-19 pandemic delaying their long-awaited return to the stage. It was newly announced today (January 20th) that the pioneering rap metal outfit will no longer be performing at this year’s ‘Boston Calling‘ festival.

The politically explosive outfit had previously been scheduled as one of the headliners for that event, which is to be held in Allston, MA from May 27th-29th. A full lineup announcement will be made for this year’s edition of that festival tomorrow. The Foo Fighters, Haim, Run The Jewels, Black Pumas, Earthgang, KennyHoopla, Celisse and Sudan Archives are among the initially confirmed artists.

Rage Against The Machine‘s withdrawal from ‘Boston Calling‘ marks their second exit this year from a high profile festival appearance, having also vacated their anticipated ‘Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival‘ appearance.
