Summer In Boston: The Return of Boston Calling

by Nina Subkhanberdina on Friday, June 9th, 2017

As the weather gets warmer and summertime finally rolls around, Boston begins to buzz with a certain excitement, partly because summer means the arrival of Boston Calling. Boston Calling, deemed as a more intimate edition of the eminent Coachella Festival in California, is an annual music festival located in the center of Boston at the Boston City Hall Plaza. The festival, which took place on May 26- 28, attracted a diverse crowd of both international and local young adults, many of whom are Milton Academy students.

The festival has a reputation for its magnetic energy, fun atmosphere, good food, and lively music. Each year the festival invites a crowd of highly demanded performers and prides itself on the diverse range of genre, style, and age-group it welcomes onto the stage. Boston Calling 2017 boasted a huge variety of performers ranging from trending artists, including Migos, Chance the Rapper, Major Lazer, and The XX, to the more traditionally established artists including Bon Iver and Mumford and Sons. There is always something to do at Boston Calling mostly due to the fact that the festival boasts three different stages (The Green Stage, The Xfinity Red Stage, and The Delta Blue Stage) as well as substantial variety of food options and even a Ferris Wheel.

However, singers and bands are not the only ones who take center stage during the three days; another memorable facet of the festival happens on the Comedy Stage starting in the early hours of the evening every night. Distinguished comedians including Pete Holmes, Eugene Mirman, Lamont Price, Phoebe Robinson, Lamont Price Hosts, Tig Notaro, John Johnson, Hannibal Duress Hosts, and many more, show off their greatest witticism. All of the stages are active at around the same times; However each performance is staggered so that even if there is overlap between performers, it is not significant, so that audience members do not miss out. Moreover, the festival works hard to cater to its audience members creating time and spaces in between performances for the crowd to relax, eat, and mingle.

As always, this year the festival attracted a significant amount of Milton students, especially seniors who found the concert to be the perfect senior spring diversion and opportunity to make memories as their time here with each other comes to a close. Emma Comrie (I) shared, “I loved Boston Calling! This was my first time going and it definitely exceeded my expectations. The food was great and the atmosphere was even better. I will definitely be coming back next year. My favorite performances for sure were Chance the Rapper and Migos, because they both brought so much energy and there were a lot of fans out there so it was really fun.”

Fellow senior Claudia Chung (I) agreed, saying “I have heard a lot about Boston Calling, but I did not really know what exactly to expect. Boston Calling has definitely become one of my favorite parts about Boston and I really did not expect to have as much fun as I did. My favorite performers were Chance The Rapper and Francis & the Lights. I also really loved the food and the fair! Overall it was definitely a night to remember and I would recommend everyone to go at least once during their time here.” Pari Sharma (II) “thought the setlist was especially great this year and really enjoyed [her] time [at Boston Calling],” adding that the festival was “very well organized and well run” in comparison to many other music events.

Prospective attendees can purchase either a ‘single day pass’ that was priced at $126 this year or the more popular ‘three day pass’ option at $306 where you can gain access to all performances on all stages for all three days. The festival has never failed to exceed expectations and leave attendees wanting more, and clearly this year was no exception.
