It's finally here! Boston Calling organizers have announced the lineup for the 10th edition of the fan-favorite music festival ahead of its return this spring. Here's everything you need to know about Boston Calling 2019.

Boston Calling 2019: Who are the headliners?

After scoring Eminem, Jack White and The Killers as headliners for last year's fest, Boston Calling is back with another stacked lineup of A-list performers. Boston Calling 2019 will be headlined by a trio of prominent acts, including rapper Travis Scott.

Following their headlining performance at Coachella 2019 this spring, Australian rock group Tame Impala will ship up to the Hub to perform at Boston Calling 2019. The band previously played the music festival during the spring 2015 edition. Twenty One Pilots is also set to headline this year, which will mark the group's return to the show for the first time in five years after playing the fall 2014 edition.

Boston Calling 2019 lineup: Full list of performers

The rest of the lineup for this year's fest is pretty impressive as well, featuring a number of returning favorites. 

Some of the highlights for the 10th edition of Boston Calling include Odesza, who played the 2016 show; Hozier, who's back after performing at the fall 2015 fest; Janelle Monáe, who's returning after playing the 2016 edition; and Brandi Carlile, who last performed at Boston Calling in 2017. Notable first-time Boston Calling performers include local rockers Guster, rapper Logic, the band Greta Van Fleet, plus Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals. 

In recent years, the annual festivities has also featured a comedy and entertainment stage to go along with all the great music, such as the Natalie Portman-curated film fest at last year's show. This time around, Boston Calling is going pretty heavy with Saturday Night Live stars and alums for its arena stage, as Weekend Update co-host Michael Che, current cast member Melissa Villaseñor and former SNL star Fred Armisen are all set to perform. Fellow SNL alum and Massachusetts native Jenny Slate, who was set to perform last year but couldn't make the fest, is slated to perform as well at Boston Calling 2019.

Additionally, the Boston Ballet will take the stage, as well as Grammy winner Imogen Heap, who will present a special spoken word performance using her famous Mi.Mu gloves.
