There is a kid-friendly space for Boiseans itching to ride the Tilt-A-Whirl or eat their weight in fair food. That place is the Boise Music Festival, returning to Expo Idaho with live concerts, carnival rides, booths of local art, food and fun in the sun. The lineup this year includes Flo Rida, Emily Stanton Band, Hey Violet, The Band Perry, Austin Mahone and Sean Kingston, along with a host of local bands on six different stages—whether audiences prefer hip hop, alternative or country, BMF has something for everyone. Kick off the weekend early at the BMF Pre-Party on Thursday, June 22, at Roaring Springs, and score free tickets for the big day. Guests are advised to bring folding chairs, sunscreen and earplugs "for when we really rock out."
