Boston Calling turns 10 this year and has announced the lineup for the 2019 Memorial Day weekend festival, with headliners Twenty One Pilots, Travis Scott and Tame Impala taking center stage May 24-26 at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston, Mass.
This year's festival, produced by Crash Line Productions and the Madison Square Garden Company, will present more than 55 performances from musicians, bands and comedians across its four stages. Performing on the indoor comedy stage this year are Michael Che, Jenny Slate, and Fred Armisen.
"We love the artists that have been assembled for 2019, and look forward to welcoming back many of our favorites,” says co-founder and ceo Brian Appel.
This year's lineup also includes Greta Van Fleet, Hozier, Lord Huron, Sheck Wes and Christine and the Queens, plus Boston bands like alt-rock favorites Guster, indie-rock band Pile and Clairo, the 2018 Boston Music Awards Pop Artist of the Year. It's also pop singer Marina's first live date for the year so far.
Boston hometown favorites Sam Jay and Lamont Price will perform in the comedy tent as well, while English singer-songwriter Imogen Heap will present a special spoken word performance featuring her groundbreaking Mi.Mu gloves that produce sound by capturing movement and hand gestures.
Tickets go on sale Thursday (Jan. 10) and gradually increase in price as the festival draws closer. A limited number of Announce Day GA, VIP and Platinum tickets to Boston Calling are available at bostoncalling.com for 24 hours or while supplies last.
