Boston Calling 2020 Refund and Ticket Transfer Info

We thank you for your patience as we worked through the process to make your ticket rollover or refund as smooth as possible.  While we are incredibly sad about having to cancel this year’s Boston Calling, so many exciting things are happening behind the scenes.  We know that this year’s lineup was met with great enthusiasm, and we have set our sights on making 2021 even better!

As you are a valued customer, we want to give you options whereby you can either rollover this year’s tickets to the 2021 Festival, scheduled for May 28-30th, or obtain a refund according to the terms below.  You must follow the directions below by no later than APRIL 28, 2020 by 5:00 pm (EDT) if you wish to receive a refund.  We hope you select the option to use your tickets for Boston Calling 2021, as we will provide special benefits to acknowledge our appreciation of your patronage.


We are proud to have you with us – just hang on to your tickets – you don’t need to do anything else. Your tickets will be rolled over seamlessly to the 2021 Festival.  

As a THANK YOU, you’ll automatically receive credit on your RFID wristband for next year which can be used at the 2021 Festival for food, soft drinks, merchandise, Ferris wheel rides, and other goodies around the Festival site. The amount of credit you’ll receive will depend on your ticket type.

3 DAY GA: $25.00
3 DAY VIP: $50.00
3 DAY PLATINUM: $75.00

In addition, we’re excited to announce that when you roll your ticket over to the 2021 Festival, you’ll also receive the ability to take advantage of early bird pricing for tickets to the Festival in 2022 and 2023 AFTER the lineup for each Festival is announced!  And, if the price you paid for your 2020 ticket is higher than the 2021 early bird ticket price (it’ll be announced in the coming months), we will automatically add the difference as additional credit to your wristband which can be used for food, merch and other items to make your 2021 Festival experience even better.

And as a final thank you for your immense loyalty, we have one more special perk that we’re cooking up for you. We’ll share more info about this one down the road.

If you opted for layaway plan and you still have a payment remaining, your final charge will be automatically debited on June 15, 2020.
