When and Where Is Boston Calling?

Boston Calling 2023 takes place across three days on Memorial Day Weekend, Friday, May 26 though Sunday, May 28 at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Boston Massachusetts. It’s a bit of a flight (or quite the distance if you’re driving) for us Angelenos, but if you’ve never been, you really should consider adding Boston Calling to your festival season. It’s pretty badass, and did we mention the YEAH YEAH YEAHS?!


The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O at the Hollywood Bowl was my favorite concert view of 2022. One of my favorite bands on earth. I’ve seen them perform at least a dozen times and each show fills my soul! I’ve never been to a YYY’s show that DIDN’T blow my mind. #yeahyeahyeahs #concerts #pov #concertview #indierock #concertlife #kareno #womenwhorock #concertvideo

Unlike some other festivals that have been bloated with fans that go just for the ‘gram, or festivals that cater to the rich — Boston Calling is pretty damn legit. Those other music festivals are a whole lotta fun too, but if you want something real, you go to Boston.

And Boston Calling’s food and beverage lineup looks amazing! Attendees can feast on a variety of culinary delights from around the world; Buenos (South American), Cambodian Sandwiches, Israeli-inspired Southern BBQ and more.
