Want to see bands like Fun., the Shins, the National, and Andrew Bird play City Hall Plaza this summer? You can pick up tickets starting on Friday, March 1.
Boston Calling, the city's first multiday, multistage, ticketed rock festival, will begin selling early bird weekend passes at 10 a.m. on Friday. General admission will cost $120 while a VIP pass goes for a cool $325. Single day tickets for the event, which runs May 25-26, will go on sale for $75 soon after.
The first night's headliner, Fun., just won Grammy Awards for song of the year ("We Are Young") and best new artist. Aaron Dessner, guitarist for the second night's headliner the National, helped curate the lineup, which includes two bands with local ties, the Beverly-bred post-rock instrumental group Caspian and Boston's own Bad Rabbits, formerly known as the Eclectic Collective.
Are you going to buy tickets? Who are you most excited to see? Who would you have liked to have seen added to the bill? Check out the full lineup after the jump.
