Treefort Music Fest is coming to Boise in a little over 60 days and, if that’s not enough to get excited about, the festival just announced the complete music schedule and more music, tickets and venues.

“We added a Wednesday Main Stage for added outdoor space due to COVID,” said Festival Director Eric Gilbert, “and there were some new places that opened up around town and some businesses that have been here for years and are coming on board. They’ve all been excited about it and we’re excited about having more outdoor space.”

This year, Treefort will expand to over 40 venues and have 11 Forts plus 430 artists slated to perform. People can view the entire music lineup and hear bands at and folks can also download the Treefort app to plan their own festival schedule.

New venue additions are KIN, Mad Swede Brewing Hall, Lost Grove Brewing and Boise Presbyterian Church. And a bonus for teens and young adults is that this year, over half of the venues are open to those underage.

In addition to opening up a Wednesday Main Stage there are also a limited number of single-day and single-venue passes. Gilbert said the nonprofit wanted to make sure the festival was accessible to everyone, even if they can’t make time for, or afford, days-long passes.

The early-birds and locals-only tickets are sold out. Still available tickets are: A five-day discovery for $250, available until Sept. 1; a five-day bedhead for $290, available Sept. 1 until festival; a five-day zipline for $420; a five-day U21 for $150; single-day tickets, Wednesday-Sunday for $100; and main stage, Wednesday-Sunday for $50.

“We’re really excited and live music has been coming back to Boise and it’s been great seeing the community again, not just seeing them over the internet,” Gilbert said.

“At Treefort there’s such a great sense of community and there’s been a palpable feeling of excitement coming from the bands. It’s been a lot of fun to watch Boise come back to life and Treefort is ready to be a part of that.”
