There have been tons of solid festival lineup announcements since Boston Calling revealed their 2017 bill back in January. You’d be forgiven for feeling some of the shine had worn off BC’s schedule in the interim — until you look back at the thing and realize, “Damn, that’s a great freakin’ lineup.” Boston Calling will move into its new home at the Harvard Athletic Complex this May 26th-28th, and it’s bringing easily its best bill ever.
Tool, Chance the Rapper, and Mumford and Sons headline the three-day fest, supported by top-notch gets including Bon Iver, Sigur Rós, The xx, Run the Jewels, Solange, Weezer, Cage the Elephant, Tegan & Sara, Wolf Parade, Mac DeMarco, Danny Brown, Flatbush Zombies, Frightened Rabbit, Car Seat Headrest, Deerhoof, Mitski, PUP, Whitney, The Hotelier, Strand of Oaks, Hiss Golden Messenger, Kevin Morby, Nataniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Brandi Carlile, Buffalo Tom, Piebald, Lucy Dacus, and the latest additions, Converge. Oh, and there’s also a film festival curated by Natalie Portman.
Yeah, that’s so stacked I actually had to double-check it just now to convince myself I wasn’t seeing things.
With this lineup, Boston Calling officially moves from small-market wonder to big-time player in the festival scene, and it’s going to be a transition you’re not going to want to miss.
