Boston Calling Announces May Return

Jack Johnson, Death Cab for Cutie and Modest Mouse headline the Spring incarnation of the fest.

Boston Calling just keeps getting better and better. Now heading into its second year (and third iteration), the festival is already expanding. Happening over two days in both versions last year, this year's will take place over three days from May 23-25. Headliners include Jack Johnson, Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse and another superstar that is being kept hush for now. The announcement will take place soon, and we'll have an update when that's available. Even with an unnamed act, that's a star-studded bill.

Other performers include Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Tegan and Sara, Brand New, The Head and the Heart, Jenny Lewis, Bastille (who's infectious single "Pompeii" provides the perfect soundtrack for the lineup video above), Warpaint, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, Kurt Vile, The Neighbourhood, Built to Spill, Phosphorescent, Walk off the Earth, Maximo Park, The Districts, Tigermanwoah! and Magic Man.

Like the first installment last year, the lineup is trending towards rock, folk and alternative artists. The September version last year went with more hip-hop, rap and dance music, so I assume the latter version will also follow suit. This is an impressive grouping of artists on its own, and by spreading it out over three days, fans will get to see more of these artists and maybe not have to choose between on or the other during a crowded lineup sheet.
