While information about which performers are playing their set on which day isn’t yet available, the lineup above is available to the public and fans should be thrilled with what they’ll see at this festival. Headliners will be performers like Twenty One Pilots, who have had some of the most successful tour runs of the last decade in the past few years. Tame Impala is another headliner, and their style of music is perfect for this type of festival setting. Travis Scott will also be headlining, and he’s had perhaps the biggest year of any artist in the game right now, with sales of his hit album Astroworld through the roof, as well as ticket sales for his current tour in insanely high demand. Odesza will be performing to satiate fans of electronic music, and in general, they put on one of the best live performances of any act that can play a festival setting. Some other gems will be Logic, Greta Van Fleet, Hozier and Janelle Monae, among many others.

Does Boston Calling Have Single Day Tickets?

Most festivals only release full weekend passes – at first.

Once the festival sells out of all of their 3-day passes, Boston Calling has typically released single day tickets for fans who are only looking to catch a single headliner. These single day passes hit the secondary market and do typically cost more than the price-per-day if you purchase the full weekend pass at once, but if you’re only looking to go for one day or can make it one day, it’s worth saving the money and going with the single day.

How To Get the Cheapest Boston Calling Tickets

If you weren’t able to secure tickets through any presales or general sales for Boston Calling, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Tickets can still be purchased from secondary marketplaces, although the prices will not be at face value. With a festival as big as Boston Calling, prices are anticipated to be on the higher side, but that doesn’t mean that good deals can’t be had – if you know where to look.

With high prices come high service fees with many marketplaces, but not TickPick.
