Rage Against the Machine Announced for Boston Calling and Firefly Festivals


Rage Against the Machine have added two more festival dates to their 2020 touring itinerary. Last November they announced their reunion to great fanfare, including appearances at Coachella on each of the annual festival’s two weekends, and three headline dates in the U.S. Southwest in March.

The band will headline on Saturday, May 23, on the middle day of the Boston Calling festival in (duh) Boston. Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline the first and third nights, respectively, with Andrew W.K., The Struts, Brutus, Run the Jewels and Dinosaur Jr. among the many other bands scheduled to play.

Rage Against the Machine will also perform at the Firefly Festival, set to take place between June 18 and 21 in Delaware. The festival hasn’t yet announced which bands are playing which days, but other acts scheduled to perform include Billie Eilish, Halsey, Khalid, Blink 182, Maggie Rogers, Cage the Elephant, Run the Jewels, Chvrches and David Lee Roth (!).

The band’s 2020 live schedule now stands as follows:

March 26 El Paso, TX – TBA
March 28 Las Cruces, NM – TBA
March 30 Phoenix, AZ – TBA
April 10 Indio, CA – Coachella
April 17 Indio, CA – Coachella
May 23 Boston, MA – Boston Calling
June 18-21 (TBD) Dover, DE – Firefly Festival
