Boston Calling has once again curated a unique and diverse lineup that celebrates both renowned artists and breakout stars, delivering fans a collection of the most talented musicians the world has to offer. Rage Against The Machine are reuniting for their first performances since 2011, and Foo Fighters, who continue to deliver some of the biggest live shows in the world, will celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2020. Meanwhile, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, are currently working on their first album in over three years.
Each year, the festival features a variety of local talent on the bill. This year, local and regional acts include Massachusetts’ own rock favorites Dinosaur Jr., Boston based hip-hop rising star Cliff Notez, rock band PVRIS from Lowell, MA, Boston rock group The Sheila Divine, and industrial hip-hop crew Camp Blood, also of Boston. Further celebrating the region’s talent, this year’s Boston Calling will feature a lineup of 19 local comedians and 12 of Boston’s best DJs.
This year, the festival will raise the bar for fans by expanding its offerings in VIP and Platinum. An all new VIP lounge, sponsored by Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort, will become an oasis within the festival featuring full bars and unique amenities. Fans can also expect newly enhanced viewing areas within VIP and Platinum, including a new double decker VIP experience overlooking the Bai Red Stage and the Green stage, and an expanded viewing deck within Platinum where food prepared by some of Boston’s best chefs will be served throughout the entire day!
