2014 lineup. When they take the Boston Calling stage on Saturday May 24, 2014, fans will be privy to the band’s first live show since August, 2011 (their last Boston show was January, 2011) and their one and only festival appearance of 2014. Boston Calling also announces that a limited number of single day tickets for Saturday and Sunday, both General Admission and VIP, will go on sale today, Thursday March 20, 2014 at 12pm EST, and shares details on its Beer Gardens, presented by Samuel Adams®, which is celebrating its 30th birthday at the festival and is based in Boston. Boston Calling takes place Memorial Day Weekend, May 23, 24 and 25, 2014 at City Hall Plaza [One City Hall Square, Boston, Massachusetts];

The Decemberists will add even more stage power to the Boston Calling lineup with their famously eclectic performances. The Portland, Oregon based group most recently received critical acclaim for their sixth studio album, The King is Dead, which was Number 1 on the U.S. album chart in 2011 and featured the hit songs “Down By the Water” and “This is Why We Fight.”

Honoring three decades of top quality brewing based right here in Boston, Samuel Adams will celebrate its 30th Anniversary this year in Boston Calling’s Beer Gardens. Guests will find the ultimate craft beer experience complete with samples of various Samuel Adams brews. Further details are forthcoming.

Additionally, in this year’s VIP experience, ticketholders will have access to City Hall Courtyard, a 25,000 square foot, second-floor Mezzanine offering prime views of the main stage and complimentary food by Hard Rock Cafe Boston.
