Boston Calling details improvements, new layout to 2018 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.

We’re just under six months away from Boston Calling’s 2018 edition, and the festival has already started detailing improvements to the overall experience.

In a tweet sent out Thursday morning, Boston Calling highlighted aspects like “double the entrance lanes,” larger video screens broadcasting performances on each stage, enhanced wi-fi, and a “brand new 20,000 sq/ft VIP & Platinum Lounge.” There will also be twice as many restrooms, more art installations, “dozens more food vendors,” and… well, just take a look:

The fest also has altered its layout across the Harvard Athletic Grounds, and you can see a map of the new-look below. Move to the side, Ferris Wheel.

After a few years at City Hall Plaza, Boston Calling made its Allston debut earlier this year with an expanded three-day festival headlined by Tool, Chance The Rapper, and Mumford & Sons.

Next year’s event goes down over Memorial Day weekend 2018, from Friday, May 25 to Sunday, May 27.

The performer lineups are usually revealed in January or February.

UPDATE: A previous version of this post incorrectly speculated a shift in programming based on dates posted on Boston Calling’s homepage. Vanyaland regrets the error.
