About the festival
Boston Calling Music Festival is a multi-genre musical gathering just outside Boston, in Allston. Founded in 2013 the festival quickly rose to become the city's premier annual multi-genre event.
Welcoming 40,000 music lovers over its three days, Boston Calling is co-curated by The National's Aaron Dessner and features lineups of influential acts from rock, hip hop, indie and beyond.
Over the years the festival has hosted performances from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend, Tool and Eminem, to name only a few.
Adding a new stage for 2020, Boston Calling spreads 60+ acts across five stages over three days for an immersive experience of sonic and visual arts, gourmet food, carnival attractions and more.
