If you’re looking for a weekend getaway and you love music as much as we do at Love is Pop, you should come visit the city of Boston on the weekend of September 25 – September 27 and attend the fine festival that is Boston Calling. We’ve covered Boston Calling twice already — this past May and September 2014 — and we couldn’t be more excited about September’s festival.
You’ve probably heard that the people of Boston are rather abrasive, or something to that effect, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s only our accents that make us sound harsh! And the people who attend BC are always super friendly, just a bunch of music fans coming together to celebrate the joy of live music, buy some killer t-shirts, eat some tasty treats and maybe have a drink or two.
Today BC has unveiled the previously unreleased line-up for Saturday and Sunday and both days will surely be amazing. Check it out below, straight from the press release!
