According to a report from Consequence of Sound, Rage Against The Machine will headline Boston Calling in 2020. If true, RATM will join Foo Fighters and the Red Hot Chili Peppers as headliners for the event, which takes place over Memorial Day weekend.
Meanwhile, this spring will mark the first time Rage’s Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford have shared a stage together since 2011. March dates in El Paso, TX (3/26), Las Cruces, NM (3/28), and Pheonix, AZ (3/30) kick off the reunion and precede two weekends at Coachella Music Festival in April.
As reported by CoS, the festival’s venue was a factor in Rage’s decision to play Boston Calling. Guitarist Tom Morello attained a bachelor’s degree from Harvard University, and the school’s athletic complex is the venue for the festival.
All signs point to a forthcoming full lineup announcement in the coming weeks. Boston Calling takes place May 22nd-24th at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Boston, Massachusetts. For tickets and more information visit the festival’s official website.
