We are tremendously proud of all of the work and energy that has gone into creating Treefort Music Fest. Over the past nine years, we’ve grown into a large, multi-faceted, community and purpose driven festival, with thousands of fans and artists flocking to Boise each spring.
Postponing the ninth annual festival to 2021 has put our organization in a very difficult financial position. In order to produce Treefort 9 and 10, we need your help. We’ve reached a crossroads that requires a new approach, and rather than involving traditional private equity or other large investors, we’ve chosen to give our fans an opportunity to invest in the fest, because y’all have helped build the entire Treefort experience since Day One.
We are super excited about crowdfunding! We can’t think of a better sustainable business model than for our festival to be owned by the community that critically shapes our culture. Investment in Treefort allows those who have been champions of the festival since 2012 to take part in saving Treefort and sharing in our future success. With every investment* in Treefort, you will receive various perks like early access to tickets for future festivals, recognition on our site, custom merch, options to join the Guardians of the Fort, and of course — eternal glory.
As a first step in this process, we’ll be launching what’s called a Regulation CF Raise on the WeFunder platform. We can only accept up to $1,050,000 under Regulation CF, but we may accept additional funds under other securities law exemptions related to accredited investors. On Friday, July 31st at 10am MT, we invite the world to become Community Owners of Treefort Music Fest through our crowdfunding page https://wefunder.com/treefort. We are thrilled for this next step, and hope that our fans and community will join us on the next branch of this already epic Treefort we have created together.
If you’d like to invest or just to get more deets on the whole thing, pop on over to our WeFunder page right here.
