Let's take you back to The Boise Music Festival. We kick-off details about BMF in just hours and this should get you ready with some extra perks.

The Boise Music Festival is back and ready to rage through Expo Idaho on June 24 this Summer. The art of defining musical acts without going broke is a definite challenge. Let me take you behind the scenes real fast. Let's go back to year one with Bret Michaels, The Backstreet Boys, and more.

We packed out Ann Morrison Park with a free ticket that had people climbing trees to get a look at the performers. If you remember I was doing mornings with Michelle Heart and the station frequency was at 103.3 Kissfm before upgrading to 103.5 Kissfm. There was also a different, crazy crew that rocked the mic that year.

It's been fun to watch this festival grow so much that each person on the staff continues to push the envelope on making it better. That usually ends in several arguments, sometimes hurt feelings, but always works out. BMF is more than just a show, it's an experience. Think about it for a few seconds on this Throwback Thursday. Where were you?

Can you date back to when someone came and maybe you met a certain guy. Was this the year that your break-up finally hit an emotional wall after watching Nick Jonas drop chains? I remember the first one with Bret Michaels after he just won Celebrity Apprentice. Jason Derulo was insane and so was Nick Jonas.


Nelly was definitely the showstopper in 2016 as Daughtry actually sat side stage with his crew watching the performance. This year will be a surprise year with potentially more performances, rides, vendors, and some secrets to be unveiled soon. Are you ready? Monday at 7:10 we roll out the details and your first pair of tickets. We might even have an act or two to announce! Make sure you are a Friends with Benefits member to receive the Kissclusive details.
