About Alive After 5

Alive After 5, presented by United Site Services, returns June 15 to the beautiful Grove Plaza in the heart of Downtown Boise. 2022 marks the 35th anniversary of Downtown Boise  producing the free summer concert series, a celebration of summer and great music that brings a lineup of fun and fresh talent select Wednesday’s during June, July, and August.


From the widely successful group that brings you Treefort, Downtown Boise Foundation is thrilled to announce a partnership with local music booking agency Duck Club to bring new and exciting bands to perform at Alive After 5 this year. The lineup of musicians will be announced through Downtown Boise’s social media channels in the coming weeks with a final lineup list to be released before the first concert.


"Growing up in Boise, Alive After 5 was one of my first introductions to live music and downtown culture. Duck Club is excited to be partnering with the DBA to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Alive After 5 and to start a new era for the series and for a whole new generation of music lovers of all ages and the Downtown Boise community." – Eric Gilbert, Co-founder & Festival Director, Duck Club & Treefort
