While the New England festival may not have the notoriety of Coachella and Lollapalooza, Massachusetts’ Boston Calling has released a 2018 lineup that rivals all others that have been announced so far.
Headlining the Boston festival, which takes place at the Harvard Athletic Complex from May 25-27, will be Eminem, The Killers and Jack White. And the festival isn’t only top heavy either, as Paramore, Queens of the Stone Age, Tyler the Creator, Khalid, St. Vincent, Bryson Tiller and many more are currently scheduled to perform.
Fans can currently purchase a limited number of early bird passes (on sale at the festival’s official website), as well as VIP passes. But we would not wait, once early bird passes are gone, prices go up, and with a lineup this great, don’t be surprised if tickets sell out fast!
Check out Boston Calling’s full 2018 lineup below.

In a members only Q&A for the Third Man Records‘ Vault this past weekend, Jack White talked a number of topics that might be worrisome for fans. Despite recently finishing a huge world tour, in promotion of his latest LP Lazaretto, White contemplated if it was all worth it.
“I’d say half the show I play, I’d rather not play, festivals for example. But I have to make the best of it and try to get inspired.”
White also added, “only seated theaters for acoustic shows for the rest of my days.” The other half of The White Strips, Meg White, was also discussed in the Q&A. “(Meg) doesn’t answer her phone… That time is gone.” Then, when asked about the chances of a reunion if they are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, White replied, “Doubt it, and doubt it.”
Kind of a depressing fans only Q&A, but hopefully it is just a funk and fans will hear a lot more of Jack White in the future(assuming they put their cell phones away at his concerts).
