With the much anticipated Boston Calling Music festival lineup due tomorrow, festival organizers are building buzz for the announcement and giving fans a chance to learn the lineup first by hosting a scavenger hunt. Dubbed “Find the Vinyl”, fans will also have the opportunity to win free festival passes if they find the Boston Calling records hidden at various locations across the city.

Boston Calling has designed ten vinyl records with the lineup scripted on the record and special edition 2014 artwork on the sleeve. The records will be hidden at key landmarks and hot spots throughout the city between 8 p.m. and midnight tonight. The festival will share ten clues via its Facebook and Twitter accounts at 3:30 this afternoon. The first participants to post a photo of any one of the ten records to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the #bostoncalling will win a pair of three-day General Admission tickets to Boston Calling.

Boston Calling will return to City Hall Plaza for is third edition over Memorial Day Weekend. Organizers have expanded the festival to three days with music set to begin on the night of Friday, May 23 and continue through Sunday, May 25. Produced by Crash Line Productions, the festival debuted last May and took place again in September. As in 2013, its 2014 lineup is co-curated by Aaron Dessner of The National, Crash Line Productions, and Bowery Boston.

Fans can participate in a special pre-sale for three day General Admission and VIP passes on Wednesday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. General Admission 3-Day passes will be sold for $150, while VIP 3-Day passes will be sold for $250.
