Who is playing at the 2019 Boise Music Festival? The Boise Music Festival lineup is starting to take shape.
The yearly concert event at Expo Idaho welcomes thousands of fans for a day of national and regional touring acts.
The 2019 event will feature rapper Pitbull as the top headliner, according to push alerts put out by the media company behind the event.
Townsquare Media called Pitbull “the biggest artist ever to perform at Boise Music Festival” in its alert. Three years ago, Kiss FM’s popular host and then-brand manager Keke Luv teased the idea of a Pitbull performance at the festival.
Since 2001, Pitbull sold more than 6-million records, with two Billboard Hot 100 tracks. Give Me Everything peaked at #1 in 2011, and Timber featuring Ke$ha topped the chart in 2014. This will be the artist’s first appearance in the Boise area.
The festival marks its tenth year in 2019. It evolved from a free event in Boise’s Ann Morrison Park to a paid attendance model in Garden City at Expo Idaho and the Western Idaho Fairgrounds in 2012. The festival will be held all day June 22nd, 2019.
The festival hosts a variety of national acts each year, including Train, MC Hammer, Joan Jett, Backstreet Boys and others.
Other performers for the festival have not been announced. Ticket prices currently run as high as $75.
