Boston Calling Music Festival Announces 2017 Lineup

By: Staff –

Boston Calling 2017 Lineup

Boston Calling has announced its 2017 lineup today. This year, Boston Calling more than doubles its number of music acts with a collection of 45 artists, which once again have been assembled by founding member of The National, Aaron Dessner.

Tool, Mumford And Sons, and Chance the Rapper will headline the festival. This year also marks a historic change for Boston Calling; it will be held for the first time at the fields of Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston (65 North Harvard Street, Boston) on Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28, 2017.

The new location allows Boston Calling to greatly expand as a multi-disciplinary festival: this year, in addition to its 45 act lineup performing across three outdoor stages, it will add a film experience curated by Academy Award-winning actress, producer, and director Natalie Portman, along with comprehensive food, drink, and visual arts components – details on each of these are forthcoming.

Other notable artists include: Weezer, Major Lazer, The 1975, Sigur Rós, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats, Sylvan Esso, Run the Jewels, Cage the Elephant, and Francis and the Lights.

A limited number of Early Bird tickets are available today, Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 10:00am EST at www.bostoncalling.com and regular priced tickets will be available when Early Bird tickets are gone.

 

“We are incredibly excited about this year’s edition of Boston Calling. Moving to our new location has allowed us to expand the programming of the festival to include many more of my favorite artists from different corners of the music world. The addition of the film program curated by Natalie will create a whole other dimension within the festival experience. We can’t wait for May,” said Aaron Dessner.
