With a move to a new location, there were bound to be a few kinks to be worked out at Boston Calling. But there were some frustrated people at the festival.

The first day of Boston Calling left many fans waiting in the general admission line for long periods, with irritated festivalgoers stuck in a creeping admission line into the evening. Naturally, many of them took to Twitter to voice their concerns.

But lines were also problems elsewhere, too. Is Harvard Square going to see a lot of Boston Calling fans heading over to eat?

Also, the official Boston Calling app appeared not to match the schedule of events. Migos, the last-minute Solange replacement, didn’t appear on it, and Mac DeMarco was listed at the wrong time.

We’ve asked Boston Calling what might have caused the issues, and will update if/when we hear back.
