In comparison to the
last time around, this lineup features a much smaller amount of hip-hop.
September had Childish Gambino and Nas (and twenty one pilots, if we’re being
fair), while September 2013 brought us Major Lazer and Kendrick Lamar. The May
editions seem to favor the indie/pop/rock side of things, so Run the Jewels’ chunk of time is sure
to be a contrast from the majority of the rest of the weekend, in a good way.
Plus, even though El-P has assured the public that Run the Jewels 3 will definitely not be
coming out until 2016, that doesn’t definitely
mean we won’t be getting the first taste of new music, right? We’ll seeeeeee.
For fans of: Childish Gambino, Lupe Fiasco, Major Lazer For a taste, check out: “Close Your Eyes,” “All Due Respect,” “Oh My Darling
Don’t Cry” Catch them: Saturday, 2:55, JetBlue Stage
Who: Sky Ferreira, The Replacements, twenty one pilots, NAS, Lorde What: Boston Calling Music Festival, Part 3 When & Where: 9/5/14 – 9/7/14; Boston, MA By: Eric Riley
With May’s Boston Calling Festival nearly sold-out, expectations for the September festival were extremely high. Personally, I wasn’t sure if they would be able to outdo themselves. Boy was I wrong.
The festival announced today the lineup for September’s Boston Calling Festival which includes major acts such as Lorde, The 1975, The National and Childish Gambino.
The full lineup can be seen below as well as ticket information!
