Highly unlikely. They haven't even released the last artists name yet. The day by day schedule won't be released until a few weeks beofre the actual fest.
Kind of silly that they'll be selling single-day/2-day passes before announcing that info
From their website FAQ this was their answer:
When is the performance schedule released?
The performance schedule will be released a few weeks prior to the festival. If you want to be notified right away once the schedule is released, be sure to sign up for our mailing list. Artist lineup subject to change.
I agree it is silly not to at least say who is playing on which days.

My friend that I went with to the second one last year just picked up his and his boyfriend's tickets and offered me couch space again. They're not in Boston proper, but this means I am most likely down to go. I need to pick up a few other fest tickets and plane tickets before I commit to this though.

So apparently they're selling two day passes (Sat-Sun) and ticketmaster has the line-up for those days:
Death Cab for Cutie Modest Mouse BRAND NEW The Head and the Heart Tegan and Sara Bastille Jenny Lewis Frank Turner The Neighbourhood Phosphorescent Built To Spill Kurt Vile & the Violators Walk Off the Earth Warpaint The Districts Tigerman Woah Magic Man Maximo Park
So I guess Edward Sharpe, Cass McCombes and Jack Johnson are playing Friday if this is accurate. Jenny Lewis is also billed with The Watson Twins.
^If that's accurate, I'll be happy. If I do buy, I am leaning towards a two-day and would be fine with missing them. Otherwise, I'll have to take a half day vacation that Friday in order to get there in time.
EDIT: Actually, I will be on summer hours by then and be done at 1:00 no matter what.

HOLY COW YES!!!!
Guys, really put on your imagination hats and conceive how huge this news is for me: The Decemberists are my all time favorite band. I was actually in the process of arranging a trip to Portland to see their first show in years(in Portland, OR on May 29)...I was actually going to go to Sasquatch instead of Boston Calling, 'cuz a friend had a free ticket....Imagine my surprise when I find out they're gonna be playing right where I live and I already have a ticket. So much for Sasquatch. This might legit be in the top 3 surprises I've ever gotten in my lifetime.
I saw it this morning and already messaged a few friends to try to make this happen But now I am thinking about the dates and I miiiiight have a wedding that weekend.. Fingers crossed it's on Friday or something and I can make it for the rest of the weekend.

I like the top few lines of the spring edition more,but I think the September edition is much deeper and has more acts I've been hoping to see. Spoon and Future Islands are big for me. The Roots are one of the best live shows I've ever seen, and while I didn't care to see Nas at Roo last year, I'm excited just because the Roots are with him. Girl Talk in a festival setting will be raucous too.
Also: Do we think Nas x The Roots will be doing a tour together and this is just the first announcement or might this be a one-off? I'd lean toward the former as I don't see Boston Calling as big enough to book that sort of one-off. (Yet.)
