Treefort 2016 Schedule!

Start Mapping Out Your Treefort Adventure!

Once again, we have some new venues in downtown Boise for you to explore as you make your way through the Treefort experience. We’ve expanded our All Ages capacity with the addition of Mardi Gras Ballroom, Basque Center and Boise Contemporary Theater. Fresh face on the scene, The Olympic (above Mulligans), will be a venue for all five days of the festival, Fatty’s have expanded their electronic offerings to three of the festival nights and new underground club 16schedulesCrowbar will also have electronic-focused shows on three Treefort nights.

The official kickoff show of Treefort 2016 will happen at 6pm on Wednesday, March 23rd at Mardi Gras Ballroom with a collaborative performance hosted by Ballet Idaho. Choreographer Daniel Ojeda’s ballet “Viewers Like You” featuring the music of Thick Business had a sold out run last November; we’re excited that Treefort will start with a reprise performance of the ballet with Thick Business performing their soundtrack live. Following will be a stacked lineup of live music at Mardi Gras with Alex G, Porches, Your Friend, Lucy Dacus and Logan Hyde. After the kickoff, the 2016 version of the History of Boise Rock Showcase will get ramped up at El Korah Shrine. Local music sceneologist Todd Dunnigan has curated another spectacular batch of Boise bands from yesteryear — read more about this historical showcase in order to prep for this year’s schooling on our musical roots….and this is just the beginning! Several other shows, designed for various tastes ensue around town on Wednesday for what is to become another hot opening night before the Treefort world expands as Thursday morning hits with the Fort programming ++ buzzing venues all over the Treefort footprint.

(( ALL DAYS ))



Treefort’s philosophy is to always strive to protect our wristband holders while simultaneously offering solutions for people that may only want to see certain shows due to time limitations. The best value and optimal experience of Treefort is definitely found through our wristband options, which give you the opportunity to take in multiple layers of the festival and discover new loves. However, for those that need a more bite-sized taste of the festival, we offer very limited day-of-show sales at the doors of most venues. Those tickets are priced between $10 – $40 depending on the venue.

We also offer limited pre-sale tickets to our Treefort Main Stage shows and the three shows at Knitting Factory. Details below. In all cases, we reserve 75% or greater of the venue capacity for our wristband holders. The best way to guarantee entry into most Treefort shows is to be a wristband holder and to show up early. Even better odds of entry can be obtained by upgrading to a ZIPLINE Pass, which gives you front-of-the-line access. There is a very limited quantity of ZIPLINE Passes so we highly recommend buying sooner than later.
