There aren’t many festivals where you can find Twenty One Pilots, Travis Scott and Brandi Carlile on the same lineup. Well, that’s because there aren’t many festivals like Boston Calling.
The three day event takes place between 24 and 26 May at the Harvard Athletic Complex, just across the Charles River from the university’s main campus, and has a billing that will cater to the even most discerning music fan.
There’s something for everyone at Boston Calling, so you won’t want to miss a single day. Here are the Airbnbs that will grant you easy access to the indie hymnals of Big Red Machine, the stage-diving antics of Turnstile, and every artist in between.
A penthouse with a stadium view for $490 per night
The candy-pink furniture in this two bedroom penthouse is one of many splashes of color in this joyful living space.
The brightly colored decor is offset by neutral white walls and hardwood floors, providing you with a comfortable home to unwind in between days at the festival.
As you’ll be able to see through the wide windows of the penthouse, the Harvard Athletic Complex is a short walk away, meaning you won’t miss a set.
A Boston Skyline view for $500 per night
The main communal area of this elegantly renovated apartment forms the shape of an L, with a TV lounge area at one end, an open-plan kitchen at the other, and another living space in the middle, complete with luxe wraparound leather sofa.
The five bedroom apartment is perfect for large groups, and is located just east of the university, providing easy access to Rolling Loud at the athletic complex and to the historic sites and lively nightlife of Boston itself.
Alternatively, stay in after a day at the festival, and enjoy the illuminated skyline of Boston at night.

Located in Cambridgeport, the Harvard Athletic Complex is just across the river.
A Cambridge oasis for $600 per night

The large kitchen and communal spaces, along with space for ten guests, will make a crowd feel at home; and the rural vibe will provide a sanctuary for anyone needs to recharge after going a bit too hard during Sicko Mode.
Try to claim the master bedroom if you’re travelling as a group. The adjoining balcony is worth fighting for!
Loft-style living for $663 per night
