TICKETING + PASSES
How much are tickets?
Depending on when you buy your ticket, you can get a festival pass as low as $100. Check out the TICKET INFO page for all of the details. The Treefort Golden Rule is to buy as early as possible!
What if I just want to see one band?
You can try to get a walk-up ticket, but we recommend you get to the venue super early (like before doors open), if you leave and then return and there’s a line, you must wait in line to enter as you are treated as a GA wristband holder for that venue on that day.
Getting a festival wristband to Treefort is the BEST WAY to see all the music and other events we have to offer.
Can I bring my kiddos?
Yes, we love young music fans! Children 12 and under are free to attend Treefort Music Fest, accompanied by an adult with a Treefort pass.
Can I go to just one venue?
A ticket to a Knitting Factory show will guarantee your entry with or without a 5-day wristband. Limited quantity available. Remaining capacity will be reserved for wristband holders on a first-come-first-served basis. Individual venue shows will only be available at the venue the day of the show for $15 – $40. Walk-up sales are available based on number of tickets pre-sold, age restrictions and subject to legal capacity. If there is a line, no walkup sales will be available. If you try to get a walk-up ticket, we recommend you get to the venue super early (like before doors open). If you leave and then return and there’s a line, you must wait in line to enter as you are treated as a GA wristband holder for that venue on that day. Getting a festival wristband to Treefort is the BEST WAY to see all the music and other events we have to offer, and buying your wristband early is the best way to get it at an affordable price!

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to Treefort?
The Treefort Main Stage is an All Ages venue. Treefort shows in other clubs, venues, and bars are subject to all legally-enforced age restrictions, closing hours, and curfews (we don’t make the laws in Idaho, sadly). When all venues are announced specific age requirements will be listed for each venue. We do our best to include a variety of programming in venues to accommodate fans of all ages.
