Welcome to Treefort 2020

We’re backkkkk!

It’s year 9 and we’re feeling fine with a fresh, new look! We’re already counting down the weeks (it’s 32 weeks, in case you’re wondering) ’til Treefort Music Fest 2020 — March 25 – 29, 2020 in Boise, Idaho. Treefort offers us all a unique opportunity to take a break from our normal routine to discover new favorite bands, films, writers, yogis, hackers, thinkers, comics, makers, artists, ales, and foods while getting a little rock’n’roll wild with our friends and neighbors. For many of those going to school, Treefort lands right on Spring Break!

Every year we like to shake things up, do something new and maybe something unexpected. 226 days and we’ll be back at it with the best of the best music, film, dance, art, beer, and so much more. Until we share what’s in store for us at Treefort 2020, go and explore our brand new website, built lovingly right here in beautiful Boise.

Let’s get the party started: submissions are open NOW and tickets go on sale Saturday, September 7, 2019!


Submit your work for a chance to be presented at Treefort 2020!

Whatever your art form — music, dance, drag, visual media, film, yoga, tech, etc. — we want you to share it with us at Treefort 2020. Tell us about yourself, what you want to present at Treefort 2020, and send us your best work on your designated submission form (there’s a form for each fort).

Every fort submission form has their own specific deadline, but generally submissions are due in December. Music submissions are due December 5th.




Registration will be open soon!

Treefort Music Fest happens each year thanks to the hundreds of volunteers who lend a hand, and 2020 is no different. We’re looking for new and familiar faces (and hands) to help out before and during the festival.

Volunteers will pay a $30 registration fee and receive a Festival GA wristband and one-of-a-kind t-shirt designed by Treefort Art Director James Lloyd. A deposit to cover the cost of the wristband, refundable after volunteers complete their volunteer duties, is required upon signing up for volunteer shifts on March 1st. Most volunteers have three 5-hour shifts during the festival, or less for those working Green Team or late-late-night shifts.




Get your Treefort 2020 Pass on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 10 AM MT!

The first wristbands available online will be at the ever-so-thrilling price of only $100*. EARLY BIRD tickets sell at an alarming rate (within seconds) and are designed as a way to say “Thank You” to you, our loyal fans. Don’t miss out on this wicked deal – only 200 Early Bird wristbands will be sold! Only 2 passes per person.

If you live within the Boise area, you can snag a special LOCALS ONLY PASS for only $175* at The Record Exchange on Saturday, September 7, from 10am – 9pm MT. Only 4 passes per person.

Treefort is all about exploring various music and art and discovering your new favorite artists, and we want to reward those who come to the festival to explore with a specially priced DISCOVERY PASS – a full festival General Admission wristband at the stellar price of $190*. This price level is time-sensitive (until the first artist announcement) because you trust us to continue bringing you the coolest in emerging artists!

For Treefort fans who are under 21, we’ve designed a limited quantity of U21 PASSES just for you! Same as the General Admission wristband, but at a price of $125* which reflects our dedication to getting younger fans into as many shows as possible – we aim to have more than half of our venues all ages.

*the prices listed above do not include any ticketing fees or taxes.



Though we’re back to the drawing board for Treefort 2020, we still fantasize of reliving Treefort 8. Rediscover the fun we had just months ago while we put together some more merrymaking festivities: this hot hot 2019 recap video will take you back into the crowd and hold you over…at least for a little while longer!
