Foo Fighters‘ 2023 schedule is filling up.

After announcing earlier Tuesday that they’d be headlining the 2023 Boston Calling festival in May, Dave Grohl and company have revealed they’ll be leading the lineup for this year’s Bonnaroo and Sonic Temple festivals, as well.

Bonnaroo takes place June 15-18 in Manchester, Tennessee, and also features Paramore, Korn, Portugal. the Man, Marcus Mumford, Pixies, My Morning Jacket, girl in red, The Revivalists, Franz Ferdinand, AFI, Fleet Foxes, Odesza and Kendrick Lamar.
