UPDATE 7:19 p.m.: We have a 3rd map quadrant, and a few more names to confirm: Battles, the Front Bottoms, Lizzo, and — as we predicted yesterday — Courtney Barnett. Hit the slider below for visual evidence.
One year ago today, Boston Calling Music Festival released its spring 2015 lineup with a party at Tasty Burger and a city-wide scavenger hunt. This year, the lineup for this spring’s May 27 to 29 festival is slowly trickling out to those who bought pre-sale tickets.
Our spies tell us that fans who purchased advance tickets to the spring festival were last night given a section of a Boston Calling map of its City Hall Plaza space. And some of the performers are listed in various areas. On the map so far: Janelle Monáe, Elle King, the Vaccines, Christine & The Queens, Vince Staples, Lisa Hannigan and Aaron Dessner (The National), Charles Bradley, and Allston guitar-rock band Palehound, the winner of Best New Artist in the 2015 Boston Music Awards.
