About the Boston Calling Music Festival
Twice a year, tens of thousands of music fans of all stripes congregate
in Boston's City Hall Plaza for a weekend-long, super-cool music festival that showcases the best bands in the city and in
the country. While other major cities would have established big-name festivals long before Boston, that would all change
with the introduction of the Boston Calling Music Festival in May of 2013. Mike Snow and Brian Appel of Phoenix Music Group
would have the idea for the Boston Calling Music Festival and originally hoped to launch it with the co-operation of local
radio station WFNX. Unfortunately, the radio station would no longer be on air by 2012, and Snow and Appel were forced to
regroup. Regroup they did, and would found a new company named Crash Line Productions. Crash Line would source the funding
that would enable Appel and Snow to produce the Boston Calling Music Festival by themselves.
Thanks to their careful
and practical planning, not to mention their infectious enthusiasm about introducing this new caliber of arts event to the
great city of Boston, Appel and Snow would convince the city officials to run the Boston Calling Music Festival. Boston's
director of special events, tourism, and arts, Christopher Cook, would be right on board with the Boston Calling Music Festival
vision, as he had been receiving requests from young urban professionals for an increase in arts and culture events in order
to make the culturally rich city an even more attractive place to live.
With four successful festivals under their belts,
Appel and Snow are set to wow audiences again in May 2015 with a top billing that consists of The National, Lorde, The Replacements,
Nas x The Roots, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Childish Gambino. Other notables are Spoon, Girl Talk, The 1975, Volcano Choir, Twenty
One Pilots, The War on Drugs, and The Hold Steady. Hoping to catch some hot new up-and-comers? Boston Calling has you covered.
Don't miss Lake Street Dive, Bleachers, White Denim, Sky Ferreira, Future Islands, San Fermin, S.Carey, Clifflight, and Gentlemen
From the get-go, the Boston Calling Music Festival would attract some of the biggest
and brightest names in pop and rock music. Their first festival would be headlined by 2013's "New Best Artist" Grammy winner
Fun, as well as featuring a plethora of other premier talent. Bands like Marina and the Diamonds and Of Monsters and Men would
be a big hit.
Boston would be long-overdue for its own musical extravaganza thanks to the municipality
having some of the most strict public-safety codes in the United States. However, Appel and Snow would be up to the challenge
and planned the festival to the letter, working with the city to ensure that a festival with over 20,000 guests would not
disrupt public transportation, traffic, and other aspects of city life.
