“We are so thrilled to bring Boston Calling back, and we cannot thank our loyal fans enough for supporting us as we navigated the pandemic,” Boston Calling CEO Brian Appel said in a press release. “This year’s line-up is particularly special for us. It not only signifies a return to the things we love, but it also celebrates some of the world’s most renowned acts, exciting up-and-comers, and Boston’s talented music scene.”
Of the 50+ artists on the bill this year, 18 have New England ties, with Appel saying that “it was very important to us that Boston Calling 2022 shine a spotlight on local and regional artists more than ever before.” Among the up-and-coming local acts on the bill are Van Buren Records, Cam Meekins, Born Without Bones, and Cliff Notez.
“I’m about to be on one of Boston’s biggest stages with a bunch of my friends throughout the day,” Cliff Notez said in the release. “To say we dreamed of this at some point is an understatement, we’re all looking forward to giving fans some of the most amazing performances we’ve ever seen. Wait until you see what we have up our sleeve!”
