For the first time since its Spring 2013 inception, Boston Calling Music Festival is now a three-stage affair. Which means that plotting out the weekend becomes more essential than ever.
To help you navigate City Hall Plaza, check out the layout map below. The most notable aspect — other than the fact that Robyn will be performing at 9:20 p.m. Saturday night on the JetBlue Stage — is the location of the new Verizon Stage, which will be positioned away from the two bigger main stages and positioned along the City Hall building.
The third stage will featuree a string of comedic performances curated by Boston’s Lamont Price, as well as music from local upstarts Nemes and Lady Pills on Saturday and These Wild Plains and Black Beach on Sunday. The new stage means there’s, for the first time ever, some performance overlap at Boston Calling, so use the layout map and full schedule below to plan your weekend accordingly.
Boston Calling kicks off Friday with performances by Sia, Sufjan Stevens, and Lisa Hannigan & Aaron Dessner. Saturday welcomes sets by Odesza, Miike Snow, Børns, Courtney Barnett, Palehound, and others, while Sunday is capped off with sounds from Disclosure, Haim, Elle King, Christine & the Queens, and more.
