Boston Calling Brings a Heavy-hitting Line-up to the Stage!

The festival is headlined by The National, which is set to release a new LP later this year, and Fun., 2013 Grammy winners for Best New Artist and Song of the Year “We Are Young.” Legends and newcomers alike, in genres ranging from indie folk and pop to American rock will perform at Boston Calling. A few highlights include The Shins, Of Monsters and Men, Young the Giant, Andrew Bird, Marina and the Diamonds, Matt and Kim, The Walkmen, Youth Lagoon, Portugal. The Man, and Cults.

In creating the line-up, Crash Line Productions’ Partners and Co-Founders Brian Appel and Mike Snow tapped Aaron Dessner, acclaimed songwriter and multi-instrumentalist of The National, so as to ensure the festival offered ticketholders the most entertaining and eclectic range of performances. It is not the first time Dessner has co-curated a festival’s line-up; he founded and curated the annual “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” festival in New York last year and curated England’s All Tomorrow’s Parties with The National this past December.
