“After a successful festival in September, it’s great to bring Treefort Music Fest back in March to celebrate a decade of discovery,” Gilbert said.
Passes are on sale now, and single-day tickets, the main stage, and the fort badge will go on sale in the coming weeks. Children under 12 are free to attend the event when accompanied by an adult pass holder. Many venues, including the main stage, are for all ages, but some are restricted to those 21 and older.

This is the tenth anniversary of the festival, which began in 2012 as a showcase for Boise’s local music and arts community, and has also brought out-of-town bands and artists to the Gem State. The festival continues to focus on independent and emerging national, regional and local artists in a wide range of musical genres.
Valley Regional Transit will allow anyone with a Treefort bracelet to ride any nude during the festival for free. VRT also operates the free Treeline shuttle service to move festival-goers from venue to venue.
Treefort Music Fest was recognized in 2015-2017 as a Cultural Ambassador for the City of Boise.
