Pat Benatar, Big Head Todd, Reckless Kelly, Young Dubliners to play Fourth of July weekend festival in McCall

Fireworks over Payette Lake? Try a music explosion downtown. One of the state’s most popular summer recreation meccas is bringing the party on Fourth of July weekend.

The McCall Music Festival will present multiple acts in the climate-controlled Manchester Ice and Event Centre in downtown McCall.

The lineup:

Manchester Center

Two-day passes go on sale at 10 a.m. April 5 at Ticketfly for $79 general admission, $119 VIP. Fewer than 2,000 tickets will be available (and only 100 VIPs.) If any tickets are available after the first week on sale, individual nights will go on sale for $39.50 G.A., $59.50 VIP, at 10 a.m. April 12.

The concerts will start at 7 p.m., meaning they’ll end in time for official after-parties at McCall Brewing Company. If you’ve bought tickets to the Manchester Centre shows, you can purchase these add-ons:

  • Friday, July 5: Stone Stanley, $10 (21 and older only)
  • Saturday, July 6: Young Dubliners, $10 (21 and older only)

With July 4 falling on a Thursday, it seems reasonable to expect Boiseans to make a trip to McCall that morning. There will be free concerts on the beach downtown, according to promoter CT Touring, and of course, the annual fireworks display over the water.
