Learn To Plan: Boston Calling announces single-day lineups for Spring 2017 festival



Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

A few weeks ago Boston Calling Music Festival revealed its massive Spring 2017 lineup, a 45-band-and-artist Memorial Day Weekend throwdown headlined by Tool, Chance The Rapper, and Mumford & Sons.


Now, we know which bands and artists will be playing on which day. Boston Calling today released its single-day lineups, complete with single-day tickets, and the fest — its first at the Harvard University Athletic Complex in Allston — shakes out May 26, 27, and 28 like this:
