Boston Calling has announced that its 2021 edition, set to take place in late May, has been canceled due to COVID-19. The festival is pivoting focus to its 2022 event.
“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,” read a statement on Boston Calling’s website. “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.
“While we are sad to go another year without the festival, we have set our sights on 2022 – mark your calendar for Memorial Day weekend,” continued the statement. “We look forward to sharing more information around headliners, lineup and vendors as we get closer to the 2022 festival.”
The festival announced that in order to receive a full refund, one must make a request by 5 p.m. ET on March 8. It also noted that fans could hold on to their tickets as they will be valid for the 2022 festival.
