Boston Calling Music Festival is returning to Boston’s City Hall Plaza September 5, 6, and 7 2014 for it’s forth installment. Boston Calling was founded by Brian Appel and Mike Snow of Crash Line Productions. Working in collaboration with Bowery Boston they’ll bring the widely popular three-day music festival back to the city of Boston. Snow stated “I’m not shocked by the success of Boston Calling. I am inspired and humbled, but not shocked. I’ve been working in radio for a number of years, so I knew the market was here. I’ve actually dreamt about doing something like this for years, so Crash Line just kept working hard to get it done.”
This September performing artists include The National, Lorde, Nas x The Roots, The Replacements, The 1975, Volcano Choir, Neutral Milk Hotel, Childish Gambino, Spoon, Girl Talk, and many more. With two different stages that allow artists to start performing on one as another band finishes up on the other is just one of the many things that make Boston Calling unique. Snow explained, “We wanted the lineup to be cohesive, and no overlapping. We also wanted everyone to have the ability to see as many bands as they want.”
The success of their third installment in May 2014 proved Boston Calling is a force to be reckoned with. According to Snow, “We plan to keep this a bi-annual event for the foreseeable future.” September’s Boston Calling Music Festival tickets and passes are on sale now.
