Boston Calling debuted four months ago in May with huge success with acts including The National (one of the members Aaron Dessner actually co-created the festival), Fun and Marina and the Diamonds. Around 20,000 Bostonians turned up even in the rain, but yes there was head-bobbing and grooving in less than wonderful rain jackets. Fortunately, for all the 250,000 students of Boston most of which have returned home for summer break, Boston Calling is having 2.0 THIS WEEK. It's difficult to have a better start of school than to see Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend, Local Natives, Passion Pit and many amazing acts.
Similar to the festival in May, Boston Calling spans two days with Saturday dedicated to indie/folky music and Sunday to electronic/trap vibes. Both GA and VIP early bird tickets for Boston Calling are sold out, but don’t fret – tickets are still available. Single day GA passes are $75 and single day VIP passes are $185; two day GA passes are $130 and two day VIP passes are $350. There will also be a bunch of food trucks, located just outside the venue (if the layout remains the same) which is great because re-entry is allowed.
Damn, Daily Beat is excited, Lyle Hawthorne and I (Lauren Engel) are going to be shooting. If you find us, say hi and we'll snap your pic. Pictures will be up within a week, stay tuned and you know you are doing your earbuds justice by coming.
