The Boston Calling food line-up looks intense (and delicious)

It includes a cone-shaped waffle filled with mac and cheese, meat, barbecue beans, coleslaw, and jalapeños.

The high-profile bands and performers slated for the next installment of Boston Calling may face some tough competition when it comes to maintaining the audience’s attention, thanks to the just-released list of food vendors at the festival.

In addition to its all-star music lineup and new location, the festival is doubling the number of food vendors serving up eats to hungry festival-goers.

New highlights include the Shuck Food Truck, which will offer New England classics like lobster rolls and oysters, and the Smoke Shop, which will serve the BBQ Bomb, a waffle cone filled with mac and cheese, barbecue beans, meat, and coleslaw, topped off with jalapeños. MoyzillaFoMuStone and Skillet, and six other vendors will be there for the first time in general admission, too.


The festival will also add a food-centric element to its VIP and Platinum tickets, offering a larger selection of vendors with special menus from chefs like Will Gilson, of Puritan & Company, Nookie Postal, of Commonwealth, Michael Scelfo, of Alden & Harlow, and Brendan Pelley, of Doretta Taverna & Raw Bar.
