boston calling music festival 2023 photoBoston Calling Music Festival is a four-stage festival featuring some of the biggest and best acts in live music.

Due to an illness within the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the band will no longer be able to perform at Boston Calling. The festival has added Dropkick Murphys, Bostonís own beloved Celtic punk band, to the lineup. Dropkick Murphys will perform at 5:55PM on Friday May 26th, and The National will now perform at 7:05PM, before Foo Fighters close out the first night of the festival. Boston Calling will take place Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28, 2023, at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston (65 North Harvard Street, Boston).

The 2023 Festival is set for May 27 - 29, 2023! Headliners so far include Foo Fighters, The Lumineers, Alanis Morissette, Paramore, Queens of the Stone Age.

The event will again be one big party with even easier access to the stages, a wide variety of food, services, vendors, activities and more. All ages are welcome, and children under 10 are free.

Harvard Sports Complex, Allston, MA map

Main Entrance is located at 65 N. Harvard St., Allston, MA and we highly recommend taking the T (Red Line) to the Harvard Square station. From there itís an easy 10 minute walk to the main entrance.

The 66 and 86 buses will drop you off right outside the stadium gates, and the Boston Landing Station via the Worcester commuter rail is about a mile away.

Street parking will be closed off around festival grounds, but Lyfts, Ubers, and the like will be directed to a designated rideshare pickup lot at the end of the night.
