The popular music festival has been canceled for the second year due to COVID-19.
Boston Calling officials announced on Monday, February 21, that they would be postponing the famous music festival due to coronavirus yet again. While the artist lineup and headliners had yet to be announced, the three-day event was set to take place this year in Allston for Memorial Weekend from May 28 to May 30.
“After exploring all possible options for hosting Boston Calling this year, we have made the difficult decision in conjunction with local and state authorities to cancel the 2021 festival,” announced festival officials on an Instagram post. “The health and safety of our entire community is always our top priority, and there was no appropriate scenario under which we could provide the Boston Calling experience you love and deserve.”
Those who had purchased tickets for this year’s festival may request a refund until March 8 on Boston Calling’s website or have their tickets transferred to 2022 according to festival organizers.
While we may have to go on another year without this beloved staple of the Boston music scene, it looks like we can expect it to return again next year for Memorial Day weekend 2022. “We have set our sights on 2022 – mark your calendar for Memorial Day weekend,” wrote the Boston Calling team. “We look forward to sharing more information around headliners, lineup and vendors as we get closer to the 2022 festival.”
