This weekend, Boston Calling, a music festival right in the heart of the city, returns to Boston’s City Hall Plaza.
As Passion Pit took the stage on Sunday, Sept. 8, the crowd shifted anxiously. By the end of that night, 30,000 people had danced their way across Boston's City Hall Plaza, enjoying the music, culture and excitement of the second installment of Boston Calling.
The following is an interview with Boston Calling music festival co-founder Brian Appel. Appel previously worked for Boston radio station WFNX and created Boston Calling with his friend and collegue Mike Snow last May. JustArts: What was your vision when you began developing this festival, and how close is the final product to your original vision? Brian Appel: Our original vision is very close to the final product and I think it will be fully realized this weekend.
After successfully becoming the first major music festival directly in downtown Boston this past May, Boston Calling returns this weekend.
