Boston Calling, the area’s most highly anticipated concert, hit City Hall Plaza last weekend showcasing talent such as Beck, Marina and the Diamonds and Tove Lo. For those who missed the spring edition of this musical extravaganza, the biannual festival will return in the fall with a heavily-stacked collection of artists.
Well-known artists such as Of Monsters and Men, Walk the Moon, Misterwives and Daughter will grace the Boston Calling stage this fall. These large acts are sprinkled throughout the three day festival, inviting concert junkies to take advantage of the weekend passes being sold.
While fans can expect to hear their favorite hits from these popular groups, the crowd will anxiously await the performances of those who are shedding their longtime bandmates and unveiling their independent work. Nate Ruess, lead vocalist of the indie pop band Fun, will be one to bring his new solo act to the Boston Calling music festival.
While the September lineup appeals to music tastes ranging from pop to rock, there is a strong emphasis on the indie genre. Alt-J, Hozier and Ben Howard are a few of the many artists who will quell the crowd with the soft and moving tones of their indie pop, indie rock and indie folk music.
These acts will be amplified among the musical stylings of Alabama Shakes, Chvrches, Cromeo, Father John Misty, Strugill Simpson, Twin Shadow, Stephen Malkmus, And the Jicks, Fidlar, Doomtree, The Staves, Grizfolk, Bully, Dirty Bangs and Grey Season. Though lesser-known in the mainstream music world, these fresh and up-and-coming acts are prepared to make an explosive step in the music industry.
Boston Calling arrives on September 25, promising a weekend of music, food and partying to City Hall Plaza.
