New music festival aims to rock Boston in May

New York has the Governors Ball. Chicago has Lollapalooza. New Orleans has Jazz Fest. And now, if all goes according to plan, Boston will have a signature music festival to call its own.

Boston Calling will be the first multiday, multistage, ticketed rock festival held on City Hall Plaza. The event, planned for May 25 and 26, could draw as many as 20,000 fans. Event organizers Crash Line Productions are expected to announce the festival today.
