Fall Boston Calling Reveals 2014 Set Times
Boston Calling May 2014 via the Festival
Boston, Massachusetts --- Boston Calling has revealed the set times for the Fall 2014 edition of the festival, which takes place September 5-7 at Boston's City Hall Plaza. Scroll all the way down to see the full schedule.
Like the May incarnation of the festival, artists will alternate playing two stages: the Capital One 360 Red Stage and the Jetblue Stage, meaning that the music won't stop all day, but you don't have to worry about your must-sees overlapping.
On Friday night, get things started with Future Islands, Neutral Milk Hotel, and The National, who will play at 6:45, 8, and 9:30, respectively. Gates open at 6, but get there early if you want to secure a front-row spot, because all three artists will play the Jetblue stage.
Gates open at 12pm on Saturday and Sunday, but the music doesn't start till 1:05 giving you an extra five minutes on top of the traditional hour between door-time and showtime.
Use that five minutes wisely to get to the festival early and catch the winner of Sonicbids' band contest that will kick off Saturday's festivities. If 1:05 is too early for you, be sure to at least make it to the festival by 3:05 to see Sky Ferriera, followed by Bleachers at 3:55, The Hold Steady at 5, Volcano Choir at 6:05, Girl Talk at 7:10, and Lorde at 8:15, before Childish Gambino closes out day 1 at 9:30. The music will end at 11.
Sunday, you'll see Gentlemen Hall play the first set, with The War on Drugs at 3:05, Twenty-One Pilots at 5, and Spoon at 7:10. In between you can catch San Fermin, White Denim, Lake Street Dive, The 1975, and The Replacements. Closing out the weekend will be Nas x The Roots at 9:20, who get a full 70 minutes to play Illmatic straight through, assuming everything runs on schedule.
Tickets for all three days of the festival are still on sale, including weekend passes costing $175.
