It is Boise's Super Bowl, the Olympics, and your favorite awards show combined. It's Idaho's largest and definitely one of the country's largest one-day music festivals, and it's back. Today we share with you this year's lineup, which promises to be the biggest ever!

But first, a look at the history of Idaho's record-setting music festival. How big is the Boise Music Festival? How about over 40,000 people jamming out to their favorite music acts?

Boise Music Festival Through The Years

Boise Music Festival has been enjoyed by the Treasure Valley for 10 years.
Over the years, great musical legends such as Train, MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, The Backstreet Boys, and others have journeyed to the Ada County Fairgrounds entertaining thousands. From legends to modern-day icons crossing all musical boundaries, travel to Boise year after year. The music industry has circled the Boise Music Festival as one of their favorite festivals of the year.
The lean hardworking staff at Townsquare Boise begins working on the following year's music festival the day after the festival ends. It takes hours of manpower to determine which acts are good enough to take center stage in Boise. Music trends, social media, fan interactions, and their love of Idaho are a few factors that the command staff use to determine who is good enough to entertain Idaho.
Only some festivals across the country can compete with the crowds, sponsors, and passion of over a decade of entertainment.
