Dropkick Murphys will perform at 5:55 p.m. on Friday, May 26, and The National will now perform at 7:05 p.m., just before Friday's headliners the Foo Fighters take the stage to close out the first night of the festival.

Boston Calling returned in 2022 for the first time since 2019 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Metallica, The Strokes and Foo Fighters were initially announced as last year's headliners, before the Foo Fighters had to drop out. Nine Inch Nails replaced the Foo Fighters and wound up playing two headlining sets when The Strokes had to bow out late in the process due to a COVID case.

Rage Against the Machine was also scheduled to play Boston Calling in 2022 but dropped out before the full lineup was revealed.
