REVIEW: Boston Calling Makes Debut at Harvard Athletic Complex

In its inaugural kickoff at Harvard’s Athletic Complex, Boston Calling has gone from Boston’s best known little festival to a massive event.

Because come on, you already know the music is amazing. You’ve seen the lineup. But more on that later.

Boston Calling Announces 2017 Lineup: Weezer, Tool, Mumford & Sons, The 1975 & More

When Boston Calling first announced plans to infiltrate Boston, I couldn’t have been more excited. It had been a long time coming that my home city have its own music festival, and what Boston Calling has brought the city over the years is nothing short of incredibly special. We’ve covered the festival since its inception, watching it transform, but never failing to provide stellar line-ups, and enough food, fun, and general entertainment to keep the entire weekend packed with excitement.
