  • Gates for Day One open at 1 p.m. + the first performer takes the Red Stage at 1:45 p.m.
  • Download the Boston Calling app to receive performance notifications, explore the festival map, and get real time alerts. There are charging stations near Jersey Mike’s.
  • Pack up your approved small purses, fanny packs, or clear bags. Lockers can be reserved.
  • Drink plenty of water. Bring a sealed water bottle, empty container, or hydration backpack to use at the free water refill station.
  • The three-day festival is cash free. Pre-load your wristband or visit the information booth to do a cash exchange.
