If you thought the fantastic lineup of this year’s Boston Calling needed a Beastie Boy, today is your lucky day. As is Sunday, May 27.
The music and arts festival announced that Mike D will be joining this year’s Memorial Day weekend lineup, replacing Bryson Tiller.
Mike D will be dropping a DJ set in Tiller’s slot on the Sunday slate.
Tiller, Boston Calling explains via tweet, has some sort of scheduling conflict. Which is weird, but hey — we all have a lot of things going on. Lineup replacements aren’t necessarily a new thing for Boston Calling, as last year Converge were a late fill-in for Modern Baseball, and Natalie Portman’s “film experience” was postponed and replaced by a stand-up comedy component.
Bryson Tiller can no longer make it to Boston Calling due to a scheduling conflict. We are excited to welcome Mike D (DJ Set) to the Sunday lineup in his place! pic.twitter.com/Sq6eVkTJ5W
