Treefort 2019 has been one for the books.
We grooved with Joshy Soul, partied with Rubblebucket, rocked out with American Football, and bounced with Sudan Archives. Today is the last day! We’ve danced down the streets of downtown Boise all week, but we got one more day in us. Let’s go out with a bang!
Don’t forget to check out this year’s survival guide for all the info on what to bring, how to get around, and what to eat. Pick up your Treefort Pass and some Treefort 8 souvenirs at Main Stage— everything is in small quantities so snag it up now, while you can! Need help during the fest? The Ranger Station is a great resource.
