Boston Calling Music Festival returns to City Hall Plaza for its fifth installment on Memorial Day weekend May 22-24, 2015. Beck, Pixies, and My Morning Jacket will headline a lineup that includes everything from indie rock, hip-hop, electro-pop, and country.
Each installment Boston Calling delivers variety of all-star artists. Past performers Bastille, Lorde, The National, and The 1975 are just a few that gave incredible performances. St. Vincent, Tame Impala, TV on the Radio, Run the Jewels, Marina and the Diamonds, Tove Lo, and Jason Isbell are among this weekend’s lineup. “I love this lineup,” says Brian Appel (company’s cofounder along with Mike Snow). “I think we’ve got really great songwriters, plus a nice balance of heritage acts with up-and-comers who are all over mainstream radio, along with indie-rock darlings. It’s diverse and deep and not trying to appeal to one particular sect of people.” Appel goes on to say, “What’s really been cool for us is the more info we get from people who are not just in Boston, but who come to town for it. Trust me: We love that it’s primarily Bostonians, but we also get people who say they’re booking a trip from Ireland.”
Two separate stages allow attendees to watch every act. It is a day of endless music and celebration. Boston Calling happens rain or shine so check out this spectacular music festival this Memorial Day weekend.
General-admission and VIP three-day tickets go on sale on Friday for $185 and $375, respectively. Single-day and two-day weekend passes will be available at a later date, depending on availability.
