Boston Calling Bag Policy


    To expedite entry into Boston Calling Music Festival events, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the clear bag policy guidelines and bring a clear stadium approved bag that meets the specifications outlined by the venue. Below is a summary of what you need to keep in mind when attending a concert, match or sports game; and the specifications for the clear stadium bags required.

    Boston Calling Music Festival Bag Policy For Fans:

    • ALL bags will be searched before entry.
    • Bags are restricted to small clutch purses and fanny packs that are 6″ x  9″ or smaller  and do not need to be clear, but can have no more than one pocket.
    • All other bags must be fully CLEAR and made up of clear plastic, vinyl, or pvc, and be no larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″ ONLY.  Backpacks and bags with multiple pockets are prohibited.
    • Hydration packs are allowed and do not need to be clear, but must be emptied of all liquid and have no more than one pocket in addition to the one holding the water reservoir.

    Boston Calling Music Festival Bag Rules were generated based on the NFL Clear Bag Policy and adopted the same security measures and guidelines for their events.

    PROHIBITED items into the Stadium include:

    • Cigarettes, Cigars, Lighters or Tobacco of any kind – Boston Calling is a No Smoking Festival.
    • Outside food with exception of personal sized, factory-sealed snacks
    • Large bags/ large backpacks (bags can be no larger than 6″x 9″)
    • Professional cameras & recording devices (no SLR/DSLR or cameras with detachable lenses)
    • Cans,  flasks, glass bottles (EMPTY plastic or aluminum bottles/hydration backpacks will be allowed)
    clear wristlet for festival

    NOTE:  Fans will need to go through metal detector screening and all belongings are subject to inspection. Keep in mind, if you do not bring a clear stadium bag that complies with the clear bag policy they do not have a place to store your belongings and you will be asked to return your prohibited items to your vehicle. 

      The Boston Calling Music Festival Bag Policy enables security staff to move guests through security checkpoints faster and helps improve overall safety. Shorter and faster lines, also make for a more enjoyable experience.
