Crash Line's Boston Calling returns to City Hall Plaza over Memorial Day weekend — May 27, 28 and 29 — for the spring edition of the music festival, and we finally have your lineup!
Swedish dance superstar Robyn, Aussie singer-songwriter Sia and English electronic bro-duo Disclosure are set to headline each of the three nights. Their corresponding performance nights will be released later this spring.
Additional notables include Cali-sisters Haim, rambling rocker Courtney Barnett, the sweet-sad Sufjan Stevens, uber-producers Miike Snow and the always entertaining Janelle Monae. It's also exciting to report that a total of ten female-fronted acts will perform this year — let's also mention Ireland's folk-pop songstress Lisa Hannigan and sultry crooner Elle King — making up for a lack of gender representation in the years since its 2013 inception.

"We book the artists we believe are the most inspiring and interesting for each festival," says Brian Appel, Crash Line's co-founder and producer. "This time there are many female-fronted acts, and we're very proud of that."
