Treefort gears up for 10th annual music festival – The Arbiter

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Treefort Music Festival. The festival will take place March 23-27 in downtown Boise, Idaho, and passes are on sale now.

Treefort Music Festival is a multi-location community festival with many venues available for attendees of all ages. This year, Treefort features artists from 17 different countries and 35 different states.

Treefort was started by a group of locals in 2012 with the aim of creating a music discovery event based on community values. Treefort gives local emerging bands the opportunity to perform and showcases emerging artists on tour.

Treefort is a sustainable festival. The festival has become the the very first B-corp certified music festival to its positive environmental impacts and community values.

Treefort has completely eliminated the use of plastic on its main stage. In addition, the main stage and several other outdoor stages are powered entirely by solar energy.
