About Alive After 5

Alive After 5, presented by Your Health Idaho, returns June 21, 2023 to the beautiful Grove Plaza in the heart of Downtown Boise. 2023 marks the 36th 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 continue a partnership with local music booking agency Duck Club to bring new and exciting bands to perform at Alive After 5. A diverse, exciting lineup of musicians – both local openers and national and international headlining touring bands – are coming to the downtown stage this summer.   

"Growing up in Boise, Alive After 5 was one of my first introductions to live music and downtown culture. Duck Club is excited to continue the partnership with the DBA to present a rejuvenated Alive After 5 for a whole new generation of music lovers of all ages and the Downtown Boise community. This year's lineup is an exciting one with each week offering a unique glimpse of both the national music scene and local emerging talent as Boise's reputation as a music city continues to grow." – Eric Gilbert, Co-founder & CEO, Duck Club & Treefort
