From Khalid to Paramore to BROCKHAMPTON and to many more, Boston Calling is a dream for teen festival-goers. The lineup is stacked with teenagers’ favorite artists/bands — including Tyler, the Creator and Portugal. The Man.
Music festivals are seldom catered towards teenagers. But Boston Calling has always been distinctly different. Built on the foundation of supporting indie, up-and-coming artists, Boston Calling has always given a stage to teenagers’ idols. The 2018 lineup is no different.
As high school graduation season comes rapidly upon us, Boston Calling could be the perfect senior trip to plan — or the perfect graduation gift to ask for. And even if you’re not graduating, all high schoolers deserve to enjoy themselves as we begin to enter summer vacation.
Boston Calling features the cutting-edge artists/groups every teenager is listening to and wants to see live. Check out the lineup below:
Boston Calling Music Festival is scheduled for Friday, May 25 – Sunday, May 27. You can buy your tickets here. Single-day and 3-day tickets are both still available.
Oh, and Boston Calling is so much more than music.
It is a three-day, multi-stage festival featuring live music, comedy, visual arts and food. And IKEA is going to be there! Yes, you heard that right. There will be hosting a Food Lab and Music Lab with this awesome veggie dog, cool music, an upcoming party collection, and a place to charge your phones (IKEA really coming through!):
IKEA is bringing a one-of-a-kind experience to Boston Calling this year! Swing by the Music Lab and enjoy tunes from Sweden-based artists like Cherrie, then pick up a veggie dog at IKEA's Food Lab. Plus, check out the new IKEA party collection FREKVENS — and while you’re at it, charge your phone. 📱 #BostonCalling #IKEA #ikeatoday #summer #summerfestival #frekvens #cherrie #swedish #swedishmusic
And if you’ve been before, your favorite food vendors might be coming back. The festival will host its largest food and drink lineup to date, with over 150 menu items to chose from. Returning all-star eateries/dishes include The Smoke Shop, Moyzilla, Stone and Skillet, and Zinneken’s Belgian Waffles. The festival also welcomes back El Pelon Taqueria, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, FoMu Ice-Cream, Tasty Burger, and Whole Heart Provisions. For the full food lineup, click here.
And if that’s enough, entertainers like Natalie Portman, David Cross, and Pod Save America (a personal favorite) will be performing throughout the weekend.
