A top music academy in Idaho says it’s looking to relocate the Idaho-based Idaho Music Academy Music Festival from the Idaho Arts & Arts Festival to the newly opened Idaho Music Festivals at the end of the year.
The move is contingent on the festival having a full year of music before it’s scheduled to return, said Amy Gaffney, the executive director of the Idaho Academy of Music.
The new festival, which will feature artists such as Nick Cave and The Killers and a line-up that includes the Foo Fighters, is scheduled to begin in October.
Gaffny said the new festival will offer a bigger lineup of music, including more live acts.
She said the festival will still be able to offer music performances, but it won, for now, only live performances.
Gafney said the academy was considering moving the festival from the end the year to the beginning of 2019, but that she has yet to hear any proposals for moving the event from the new site to the old one.
The academy’s new location will be in a location that would be close to the Boise International Airport.
The Idaho Arts Festival will move to the new facility.
Idaho MusicFestivals will still host a concert series called the Idaho Concert Series.
The show will feature bands from across the country.
Gaffe, who will be leaving the academy next year, said the move will allow her to focus on her own music career.
He said he hopes the move to an expanded venue will help make the academy more accessible to students.
The festival’s music lineup is expected to include a line up that includes Nick Cave, The Kill, The Police, Black Sabbath, and the Foo Fighter.
The line-ups have been announced by the academy and the Idaho Chamber of Commerce.
The state has been considering a $4 million budget for the new music festival for the past several months, but those plans have not been finalized.
Gage said the changes will not affect the amount of money the academy would receive from the state for the festival.
