The 2019 Boston Calling lineup is here, and organizers are clearly emphasizing variety for the 10th edition of the festival.
Alt-rock duo Twenty One Pilots, rapper Travis Scott, and psychedelic pop-rock group Tame Impala will headline the 2019 music festival, which will be held at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston from May 24 to 26.
Other high-profile names among the 55 acts scheduled to perform include indietronica duo Odesza, rapper/singer-songwriter Logic, and funk/R&B singer Janelle Monáe.
The festival will once again also feature a Comedy and Entertainment lineup, with Michael Che, Fred Armisen, and Milton native Jenny Slate headlining. The non-comedy performances on the bill will come from a series of performances by Boston Ballet, as well as a spoken word performance by English singer-songwriter Imogen Heap.
The musicians with local roots scheduled to play include alt-rock veterans Guster, indie-rock band Pile, pop artist Clairo, and up-and-coming singer-songwriter and current Northeastern student Sidney Gish.
A limited number of “Announce Day” three-day passes are on sale for the next 24 hours on the festival’s website for $249 plus fees, while Announce Day VIP three-day passes (which offer perks like a fast pass entrance to the festival, a VIP lounge with a full bar, and air-conditioned bathrooms) and platinum VIP three-day passes (which come with VIP perks plus access to elevated views of the two main stages, premium food and beverage options, and exclusive merch) are available for $599 and $1,099, respectively. Once Announce Day tickets are gone, the prices will increase to $264, $629, and $1,129, respectively, with prices gradually increasing over time as the festival start date draws closer.
