Boston Calling Music Festival Schedule

In 2013, the Boston Calling Music Festival set out to become a new tradition. The festival is turning out to be hugely popular and continuing to gain momentum in 2014. Boston Calling is on track to be one of the most popular events to take place every year in Boston. Aaron Dessner, a member of the indie rock band, The National, initially put the first festival together on Memorial Day and Labor Day Weekend its first year. The events were held at the Boston City Hall Plaza. Dessner did an excellent job at enticing some of the best indie rock bands to come out, creating two lineups for the separate weekends. Some of these bands include The Walkmen, The Shins, Vampire Weekend, Kendrick Lamar, Local Natives, and Monsters and Men. The upcoming Boston Calling Music Festival will take place on September 5-7 at the Boston City Hall Plaza, which was a public space designed in 1962. The event space is a great venue for the Boston Calling Music Festival. The headliners for the festival include: The National, Lorde and NAS x The Roots. The festival is spread over multiple stages and three days for an excellent time listening to your favorite indie rock bands.

The lineup list goes on to include bands that you will want to see even if you have not heard them yet, which is one of the best things about the Boston Calling Music Festival. It is noted on the website that artists are subject to change, but so far so good the lineup is perfectly curated. The headliners are likely to pull in most of the crowds. The National is headlining on Friday and are sure to be an enjoyable show. The National is an indie rock band that was officially formed in Brooklyn. The band also falls under the category of post-punk revival and has even been identified as chamber pop with its moody sounds and profound lyrics. What is interesting is that the band has noted that the melody and rhythm are written first, despite how brilliant the lyrics are Matt Berninger explained, "I never sit and fill out a journal of lyrics." The band has released a number of records ranging from Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers to Trouble Will Find Me. The New Zealand born and raised, Lorde is headlining on Saturday. She was signed to a record label at the age of 13 and is now touring all over the world from after her hit song, "Royals," blew up the radio stations across the globe. The final night will end with NAS x The Roots. Nas is an American rapper who has released 8 platinum and multi-platinum records consecutively. He is quite an impressive act that combined with The Roots will be an incredible stage performance. The Roots are a hip-hop soul band that formed in the late 80s. The Roots is a long time favorite of both indie and hip-hop fans with its amazing ability to infuse jazz into hip-hop. The Roots have even been given the recognition as "hip-hops first legitimate band." Based on headliners alone, the Boston Calling Music Festival is one of the most legit festivals. If you have not yet been to the Boston Calling Music Festival, it is time you go.


Boston Calling Music FestivalBreakthrough

It is evident that the Boston Calling Music Festival started out as a success with Aaron Dessner curating the music lineup. He did a fantastic job that brought the indie rock fans to the Boston City Plaza. It gave fans two weekends to come out and enjoy their favorite bands over two days in one of the most historic cities in the United States. At that location, the festival attendees have the opportunity to see some of the most amazing parts of Boston that reflect such a rich history of our nation's past. A festival that is lucky enough to be associated with The National is bound for success, especially after the first year's lineup. Now, the 2014 Boston Calling Music festival is even more legit than before.


Boston Calling Music Festival Experience

The Boston Calling Music Festival is a mix of the most respectable indie rock favorites. The experience will be one that is appreciated by festival attendees with an ear for musical talent that it is diverse in sound.

The three headliners each night all have a different sound, but area all united in providing their fans and future fans an amazing festival experience.
