If you're not from Idaho, we'd forgive you for thinking "Concerts come to Idaho?" It's a common mistake made by folks who don't know the Gem State very well.

While Idaho may not be considered a "concert capitol" amongst music fans in the U.S., we definitely get our fare share of great concerts!

To start, one of the biggest music artists of all time, Taylor Swift, played Idaho way back in the 2000s, but it was an absolutely legendary show that fans are still talking about today.

And of course, Idaho is home to our very own Boise Music Festival, which brings some of the biggest acts to Idaho every single summer! Here's just a small sampling of the musical legends who've made a stop in Idaho to perform at BMF:

Another superb place to catch live music in Idaho is Boise Pride Festival! Every year they bring some of the biggest LGBTQ+ acts to tear up the main stage. A definite must-go if you're into high-energy, positive musical experiences.

So what's the best concert you've ever been to in Idaho? Was it a massive show like Boise Music Festival, or maybe you saw a big artist back in the day for the very first time at a smaller venue? Let us know so we can put the list together!


Hopefully you didn't miss the recent amazing show that Macklemore put on when he was here recently. Make absolutely sure you see him live next time he's in town. He really is that good.
