If there’s one thing you can always count on with the Boston Calling lineup, it’s that it’s ever-evolving. This year the festival returns to the Harvard Athletic Complex with headliners Eminem, The Killers, Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age, and Paramore, as well as welcoming back previous players like The National, Portugal. The Man, and The Decemberists.
“Each year we continue to push ourselves to bring fans the very best festival experience,” explains Boston Calling Events, LLC (BCE), Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Brian Appel. “With some new changes and features already announced for this year’s festival, and many more on the way, we are ready and excited to treat our fans to an incredible weekend of performances from some of the world’s most iconic music acts.”
Local acts this time around include Belly and Boston Music Awards honor recipients Weakened Friends and STL GLD.
The festival will also introduce a new layout to improve upon some of last year’s frustrations. They’ll include additional entrance lanes, stronger wifi, more art installations, bigger video screens, dozens of additional food vendors, expanded craft brewing options, and a brand new 20,000 sqft VIP and Platinum lounge, including a new platinum level viewing experience. They’ll also introduce a new sound system for all stages.
The festival returns May 25-May 27th. Check out the full lineup below and purchase early bird tickets here.
