The Boston Calling Music Festival, held for the first time at the Harvard Athletic Complex, will take place from May 26th to the 28th.
The rain or shine event is unlike any other in Boston, as the city provides a different surrounding and feel to an outdoor concert. Since debuting in 2013, the concert extravaganza has been praised for it’s versatility and high quality, offering past musicians like Sia, Fun, and Kendrick Lamar. This year it seems to be no different as the festival's new location has allowed the line up to double in size, with 45 artists who will take the three outdoor music stages. The venue is presenting a variety of artists that are multigenerational, entertaining, and diverse. The impressive line-up includes Mumford and Sons, Tool, Chance the Rapper, Cage The Elephant, The 1975, Major Lazer, Run The Jewels, and Tegan And Sarah just to name a few. For those looking for eclectic and new material, Bon Iver, The Xx, and Solange will all be playing new music and providing fresh sounds to eager audiences. Solo artists that are set to perform include Lucy Dacus, Mondo Cosmo, and Tkay Maidza. Local acts will also be showcased as Buffalo Tom, Cousin Stizz, The Hotelier, Piebald, and Vundabar are slated to take the stage. The artists are sure to deliver hours and hours of music and passion to those in attendance.
A film experience by Natalie Portman is scheduled to be shown as well, which will introduce a film festival portion. The music scene offers food vendors, beverages, and a lively atmosphere to attendees as well.
