Treefort Music Fest- March


Boise, Idaho has for years received accolades for being a great place to live and raise a family, but in recent years it’s been getting increased attention as a hot spot for young up-and-coming artists. It’s in this spirit, that they introduce you to TREEFORT MUSIC FEST. Conceived as an extension of the current momentum in the Boise music scene and art scene at large, our vision is that Treefort will provide the opportunity for Boise to play host to the national and regional music scenes while showcasing the local up-and-coming talent. We see Treefort as another stepping stone for our young scene — to further introduce emerging national, regional and local artists to the music fans in the Treasure Valley so that future tour stops by those bands will be greeted with more and more familiar faces and encourage more artists to consider Boise a relevant stop on their tours. Click here to get tix to the fest taking place on March 25-29th!
