Video: Watch Vanyaland’s view of three days of Boston Calling Music Festival


Now that the dust has settled, it’s time to roll through three days of this past weekend’s Boston Calling Music Festival. The brutalist architectural beauty of City Hall Plaza was the site for 23 bands over 52 hours, including Bastille and Tegan & Sara, and Magic Man, and Vanya was in the middle of it all.

Check out the nearly-three-minute-long video below as we captured the vibe of the festival, the style of the crowd, and the music that soundtracked a perfect Memorial Day weekend — well, except for that brief rain shower during the Decemberists — in the heart of Boston.

The people who made Boston Calling were the people who attended it. Maybe we caught you with our camera.


Oh, and full-screen viewing is recommended.
