"Since 2013, we’ve had the privilege of bringing fans nine editions of Boston Calling, featuring hundreds of acts: from world-renowned superstars, to Grammy winners and nominees, to local artists on the rise," Brian Appel writes. "We love the artists that have been assembled for 2019, and look forward to welcoming back many of our favorites from past editions. With each Boston Calling, we aim to bring the festival to greater heights and this year is no exception."
To mark the 9th edition of Boston Calling, Appel and those in his coterie have enlisted Travis Scott, Logic, Anderson .Paak, Janelle Monáe, Sheck Wes, ODESZA, Denzel Curry, Princess Nokia, Tame Impala, Twenty One Pilots, Chromeo, and Cautious Clay - and of interest to hip-hop fans, in particular, Boston Calling 2019 will include a reunion of sorts for Talib Kweli and Yasiin Bey, collectively known as BLACK STAR.
