Boston Finally Gets A Music Festival Of Its Own…Boston Calling!

Boston Calling 2013 Poster

It’s about time Boston got a music festival of its own. Boston Calling is a brand new festival that will take place at Boston City Hall Plaza on May 25 and 26th. The lineup looks pretty decent with The Shins, Matt and Kim, Cults, MS MR, The National, Young The Giant, Youth Lagoon, and Caspian. The only downside is that the god awful and extremely boring fun. are headlining.

It does bring up the question of why are there only 2 Boston based bands on the lineup though. Maybe next year, there can be a second stage featuring more local bands.

Early bird tickets are on sale now for $120 for a weekend pass when using the code BOSTON.
