HOW ARE NOMINATIONS DETERMINED?
Boise Music Awards Board selects a group of 5 professional individuals in the Treasure Valley community committed to unbiased judging of submissions and nominations. They first sift carefully through qualified submissions to determine the top three who have the highest scores in each of our five categories scored between 1 and 10. These categories are not made public as we want to receive raw submissions in the form the artists believe are most important. The Highest scoring individuals or groups are sealed in an envelope until it is time to make trophy's, just three weeks prior to the event.
WHO KNOWS THE WINNERS?
Only the Event Director and the Stage Manager know the final tally of the judges scores prior to the Awards ceremony. No, the Host does not know. No, the presenters do not know. No, the staff does not know. Stop asking.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
As this evening event is to recognize and support those who dedicate their time and effort to the musical arts industry, we ask that you honor them with effort in appearance. This is not necessarily a "Black Tie Affair" but casual wear will not be allowed through the door. Suits and evening gowns are encouraged, while jeans and sandals are discouraged.
IS THIS EVENT FAMILY FRIENDLY?
While Boise Music Awards supports and encourages artists and fans of all ages, we do suggest getting a babysitter for the night of the event. Some artists and/or presenters may use language not suitable for children and alcoholic beverages will be available during the event.
WHERE CAN I PARK FOR THE EVENT?
The Boise Music Awards will be held at The Egyptian Theatre located on Main Street in Downtown Boise. Parking will be limited on the street, and while the venue is in close proximity to several paid public parking structures, they will fill up quickly. Uber and Lyft will be available the night of the event and we believe these may be ideal options, as alcohol will be available at the event as well. Boise Music Awards reminds you to drink responsibly and never get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated.
IS VALET SERVICE AVAILABLE?
Unfortunately, as parking will be limited downtown, Valet services are not available. There will be, however, curbside service to those arriving and departing via pull up vehicles.
