For many of us, festival season flies by and we yearn for it the rest of the year. Boston Calling was a great start to our's because it didn't feel short. All of the acts brought their own variety, and we always saw a different vibe given off from the crowd. The last day in specific was what we were most excited for, and boy did it live up to our expectations. Here are some of our highlights from the last day of the Boston Calling festival!
As we've passed the one week mark, things are slowly getting set into place at the Harvard Athletic Complex for our arrival. That's right, Boston Calling is finally here. We were able to get a hold of Boston Calling's talent buyer, Trevor Solomon. We discuss the many ways this festival has changed, along with the careful planning that goes into making it happen.
If you're lost in the massive Boston Calling lineup, have no fear. WIRE is here to give you a taste of what we've been scoping out.
Boston Calling finally kicked off with its first day on Friday, May 27th. People were slowly flowing in at 6, eagerly awaiting for Lisa Hannigan & Aaron Dessner, Sufjan Stevens, SIA, and any other surprises the Boston Calling team had in store
We were planning on doing some cheesy countdown for what artists we're most excited to see, however, you guys deserve better than that. Instead, we decided to talk to Mike Snow (not to be confused with Miike Snow), one of the co-founders of Boston Calling. We were provided with the opportunity to send a list of questions that he graciously answered, we dug into the evolution of this festival, the business involved, along with all the attractions it has to offer. We hope you guys enjoy and learn something new!
