    Nope. And I generally don't trust people who are willing to do that.

    That being said? Really looking forward to seeing what they bring to the table in 2019.

    Yeah this festival just doesn't bring enough music I'm into. I know a lot of people think the line-ups have been stacked but I just can't get into a lot of it. I'll likely end up going to a day where I like the headliner just to see a festival in New England.

    Last year I knew hardly anyone on the lineup but went for all three days anyways and had a blast! I'm willing to take the chance on it this year too

    Die rad.

    I went in 2013 when Brand New and Modest Mouse played and really liked this festival. Pretty well organized and great location. Lots to do around town too. Never went again though

    I generally find myself going at least one day every year. The line-up is never quite as stacked for me and my tastes as something like Riot Fest, Punk Rock Bowling, or whatever would be... But there's always just enough to get me there between bands I love anyway, artists I'm peripherally aware of or interested in but wouldn't check-out anyway, and the comedy.

    Not sure how I'd feel if I had to travel for it, but... If you're looking for an excuse to visit the Boston area, anyway? Might not be a bad reason!

    Same here. They moved to a new location recently, over at Harvard's athletic complex. I'm curious how it is, but the price has been so over the top that I haven't been able to justify it.

    Expecting a line-up announcement next week. No real reason other than... It's always announced within the first two weeks of January (and usually on a Thursday, post-Coachella announcement). Real curious to see who they pull out this year, after seeing what the other fests have thus far.

    I honestly might go for TØP which will probably be Sunday. Added bonus if Sheck Wes is the same day as them too

    Underwhelming for me, but I get why they booked who they booked. They've deviated a bit from line-ups of years past.

    If Logic, Black Star, Gang of Youths, Turnstile, and Dessa happen to be on the same day I might go. But beyond that... The ticket price really wouldn't be worth it for me this year.

    Cool for King Princess, but I saw her at the Sinclair last summer, and I think she's playing Royale soon.

    Pretty underwhelming year for festival lineups, but it's really cool that they got Imogen Heap. I'm just confused as to why she's billed with the comedians.

    I guess I'm the only one who thinks this is the best festival lineup so far

    This is exactly what I expected a Boston Calling lineup to look like in 2019

    Sheesh idk that I could want to go any less, I'm not into that lineup at all. But I'm sure tons of people are! For whatever reason I thought Black Star wouldn't play shows again? Or that Mos Def had retired or something?

    Literally my exact thoughts haha

    I had such a fun time last year, but I don’t think I’ll be attending this. Just nothing that really grabs me. Brandi Carlile is amazing live. Rolling Blackouts and Tame Impala put on great shows too. I’m sure 21 pilots will be solid. There’s definitely some undercard stuff id be interested in checking out like Anderson Paak, Ravyn Lenae, and Pile. Just nothing that makes me feel like I have to be there. Maybe if a bunch end up on the same exact day. We’ll see.

    Based on other festivals I was really hoping we’d get Vampire Weekend, SZA, and Kacey Musgraves. Ah well.

    Hope whoever goes from here enjoys it!
