CHVRCHES or Greta Van Fleet? Hozier or ODESZA? Logic or Brandi Carlile?

If you’re heading to Boston Calling 2019, those are some of the choices you’ll have to make this year. The set list for the festival has just been released, which details the exact times and locations you’ll find the acts set to perform, including which performances overlap with which other ones.

Speaking from experience, it’s a good idea to make a game plan ahead of time. That means haggling with your festival buds sooner, rather than later, about who you’ll see and who you’ll miss, should it come to that. Especially if you’re hoping to get up close to the stage for your favs, that might mean missing some performances. C’est la vie.

Also, a heads up: While the Green, Red, and Delta stages are open-air and have basically unlimited space, getting inside the Arena stage is inside a Harvard hockey rink and sometimes requires waiting in line, especially later on for the more popular acts. So plan on getting there early to make sure you get a good spot. If you’re trying to catch all of Logic before Chromeo, for example, you may be pushing it.

The festival kicks of May 24-26. Tickets are still available. Curious about what to eat? Here are all the restaurants that will be there.

You can also keep tabs on set times—and get updates on last-minute changes or alerts—via the official Boston Calling 2019 app.

So if you’re going, take a good hard look and plan carefully. You’ll thank me later:
