Organizers Cancel Boston Calling Festival Due To Coronavirus
Boston Calling organizers canceled the 2020 music festival due to the ongoing coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The event was originally slated to take place at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Boston between May 22 – 24.
Next year’s installment of Boston Calling will be held May 28 – 30, 2021. Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rage Against The Machine were originally slated to headline the 2020 festival. Information on obtaining a full refund or transferring tickets to the 2021 festival will be announced in the “coming weeks.”
Here’s the complete statement from Boston Calling organizers:
After several weeks of consultation with local and state authorities, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Boston Calling 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic.
We are heartbroken; however, the health and safety of our audience, artists, partners, vendors, first responders, and staff are of the utmost importance to us, and we felt that this was the only acceptable way forward.
To our audience, whom we value dearly, we are so sad that we will not be together with you in May. We know information regarding your tickets is extremely important to you. As such, we will be reaching out to all ticket holders in the coming weeks with a detailed outline of options available. This includes obtaining a full refund or rolling tickets to next year’s event – about which we hope to have exciting news to share soon. We thank you for your patience; please stay tuned and we will be in touch with more information in the near future.
To our valued partners, vendors, restaurants, staff and artists, we wish you all the very best during these trying times, and we look forward to collaborating with you all again soon.
