Boston Calling Announces Lineup Feat. the Pixies, Beck, St. Vincent + More
Boston Calling Music Festival has announced the 2015 lineup for its biannual event, which will take the stage on Memorial Day weekend, May 22-24, and then again in September. Watch the announcement video above.
Aaron Dessner has helped curate the festival’s lineup since the inaugural Boston Calling back in 2013. The National guitarist also helped choose this year’s roster, which includes Beck, My Morning Jacket, Tame Impala, St. Vincent, TV On the Radio, Marina and the Diamonds, Vance Joy, Jason Isbell, Gerard Way, Tove Lo, Run the Jewels, the Lone Bellow, Sharon Van Etten, Grizfolk and more. Boston’s own Pixies will also be making an appearance during the three-day event.
“I love this lineup,” Brian Appel -- the cofounder of Crash Line Productions, which hosts the festival every year -- told the Boston Globe. “I think we’ve got really great songwriters, plus a nice balance of heritage acts with up-and-comers who are all over mainstream radio, along with indie-rock darlings. It’s diverse and deep and not trying to appeal to one particular sect of people.”
Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Jan. 16. Check out the complete lineup on Boston Calling's website here.
