FESTIVAL NEWS: Boston Calling Unveils Eminem, The Killers & Jack White

Boston Calling is the third major American festival to unveil its entire line-up this year.

The May bash will, just like counterparts Governors Ball and Coachella, welcome Eminem atop the bill. Joining him will be The Killers, who are supporting new album Wonderful Wonderful, as well as returning rocker Jack White.


The most surprising part of their announcement, though, is the appearance of Queens of the Stone Age as part of the mere undercard. Josh Homme and co. don’t tend to find themselves under the headline spot anymore, which makes this come as a surprise.

Elsewhere on the line-up, The National will bring new album Sleep Well Beast to life, with Paramore, Khalid, St. Vincent, Maggie Rogers, Royal Blood, Stormzy, Thundercat, All Things Loud Album of the Year winner Julien Baker, Alvvays and Thee Oh Sees also present and correct, as you’ll see on the below poster.


Boston Calling takes place from 25 to 27 May at the Harvard Athletic Complex, with tickets onsale here.
