Attending Boston Calling was truly a trial for a first-time festival goer, especially one that doesn’t even clear five feet, such as myself. However, the 10th edition of the music festival, which was held at the Harvard Athletic Complex over Memorial Day Weekend, hosted more than enough talented performers to make it a worthwhile way to ring in the summer season. With sunny skies and temperatures that barely broke 70 degrees, even the weather cooperated to make the festival memorable.
Over the past few years, music festivals have transformed beyond just concert events with multiple artists. Now the food, the fashion trends people are wearing and the activities for attendees are arguably equally as important to the experience. Boston Calling is no different and in 2019, the festival definitely delivered on all fronts for a fun and even sometimes overwhelming experience with the bevy of options available.
