Boston Calling is back for 2023, and we’ve explored the price of tickets and the presale options available to festivalgoers for what is set to be another iconic year of music.

The eclectic Maschetusets festival is set to return this May, with a lineup fit for music lovers whose playlists know no genre boundaries.

Performers and attended will be hoping for better weather in 2023, after several 2022 performances, including the likes of Frances Forever and Sudan Archives, were canceled due to nearby lightning.

This year’s batch of performers will join the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott and Metallica, all of whom have graced the legendary stage with their presence in the past.

For those who are looking to make their Boston Calling debut in 2023, or are wishing to revisit the festival, we’ve explored the price of the tickets as well as the details of the upcoming presale.

Boston Calling announces 2023 lineup

Headlining the opening night of Boston Calling 2023 bill is legendary rockers Foo Fighters, in what is the band’s first festival gig since the passing of drummer Taylor Hawkins.

Following Foo Fighters on night two is The Lumineers. The Colorado-based folk outfit first came to prominence with their debut single Ho Hey, a track that propelled them to near household-name status overnight.

And the festival is set to be closed by veteran emo-pop rockers Paramore, who, with the help of lead-singer Hayley Williams, will undoubtedly end the weekend on a high note.

Elsewhere on the bill, the likes of Niall Horan, Q-Tip and 070 Shake are all due to feature across the weekend, making for a lineup that caters to just about everybody’s musical needs.

Boston Calling 2023 will take place between Friday, May 26 and Sunday 28.

The festival will take place at Harvard Athletic Complex, it’s home venue since 2017, where as many as 40,000 festival goers can be expected.
