Boston Calling Announces 2018 Line Up

The Boston Calling music festival has released its official lineup for the spring 2018 festival. The three headliners will be Eminem, The Killers, and Jack White. Other performers include St. Vincent (who just performed at the House of Blues), Perfume Genius, Tyler, the Creator, Khalid, and up-and-coming rapper Leikeli47. The full list of artists is below, plus a map of the festival’s layout.

The festival takes place over Memorial Day Weekend, on May 25-27, 2018, and once again will be located at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston. Last year’s canceled Natalie Portman film experience has returned, plus appearances from Pod Save America and a list of comedians, including local Jenny Slate, Cameron Esposito, and Tony Hinchcliffe.

Boston Calling is also promising additional entrance lanes, better wifi, “dozens of additional food vendors,” more craft brewing choices, and a huge new 20,000 square foot VIP lounge.

Early bird tickets for all three days are on sale now for $279, and regular general admission tickets, which will be available once those sell out, will cost $289.
