Boston Calling will be adding a few laughs to the festival’s spring 2016 installment.

On Tuesday, officials revealed the lineup for the brand new third stage, which will feature comedians and bands from around the Boston area. Local comedy star Lamont Price will serve as the stage’s host during the upcoming weekend of shows at City Hall Plaza.

The new stage will be used on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday May 29.

Boston area comedians who will be joining Price include Ken Reid, Sean Sullivan, Orlando Baxter, and Kelly McFarland while the local music lineup will feature Black Beach, Lady Pills, These Wild Plains and Nemes.

“It’s no secret that Boston Calling has quickly become one of the premiere live music festivals in all the land,” Price said in statement. “When the festival called and asked me to help curate a brand new Comedy stage I immediately said, ‘Yes – as long as I get to be Janelle Monae’s hype man and best friend/husband!’”
