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.

Boston Calling Music FestivalBreakthrough
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.
