Boston Calling announced the lineup for its seventh edition, taking place May 27 through May 29th at Boston’s historic City Hall Plaza. As always, the 23-act lineup is exciting and diverse – it crosses genres in pop, electronic, R&B and rock, and brings four 2016 Grammy nominees to Boston.
More than any other year, headliners for Boston Calling come from all corners of the globe for a kick-ass international dance party, including Australian pop powerhouse Sia, English Electronic brother duo and 2016 “Best Dance/Electronic Album” Grammy nominee Disclosure, and Swedish icon Robyn.
The lineup is carefully created to spotlight some of the world’s most exciting artists. “We believe the upcoming festival will be the most interesting edition yet. The lineup that Aaron and his team created is amazing. We’ve spent so much time this year on making the attendee experience the best it can be, from the new food and beverage experience to the new performance stage; we have even more programming space this year. We also still have a few more surprises to share,” says festival co-founder Brian Appel.
Boston Calling’s May 2016 lineup as of January 14, 2016 is as follows. The daily schedule will be announced at a later date. *Artists are subject to change.
