Second Chance Shows at Treefort 2023

Second Chance shows are officially unofficial Treefort shows.

You know when you’re making your schedule and you were all like “I cannot miss this band”, but then something comes up during the festival and you definitely miss that band? We’ve all been there and that’s why Second Chance shows at Treefort Music Fest are the BEST! Some of these shows are not “technically” part of Treefort – they are hosted by our friends, pals and partners and give you a chance to see an artist you may have missed due to conflicts in your schedule.

All Second Chance shows are free and open to the public!


Treeline | Wed 3/22 – Sat 3/25 | 6pm – 12am | All Ages

Hop on a Treeline Bus and enjoy a show on your way to the next show! The Treeline will have bands on two buses Wednesday – Saturday of Treefort 11. Treeline is all ages and free & open to the public.
