Is your awesome kid volunteering for Treefort and needs you to sign the parent/guardian agreement?
Thanks for making the future that much better.


It’s time to RALLY!

The VOLUNTEER STARTING LINE is where you kick off your Treefort experience – it’s stocked with your wristband and t-shirt so you can blast off on your adventures.

Find the VOLUNTEER STARTING LINE at the Rally on Tuesday, March 20th, 4 pm – 9 pm at The Owyhee Penthouse.  Make sure to bring your valid picture ID and a parent if you are under 18.  Stop by anytime, have a beer and some snacks, then you’re ready to race!

Starting off a little late?  You can find the VOLUNTEER STARTING LINE at The Ranger Station Owyhee 4-9 pm on Wednesday and Thursday, and Ranger Station outside the Mainstage 4- 8 pm on Friday.

Still on the fence about volunteering? 

Check in with our huge Facebook group of volunteers – I bet you know someone who’s helping out!  Or post a question, and see what the volunteers themselves have to say.

When you’re ready to register ….



Volunteers will pay a $30 registration fee and receive a 5-day 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.

Click here to read the Volunteer Agreement which you agree to abide by when you register.


All Treefort volunteers are required to pay a $135 refundable deposit for their 5-Day Wristband, at the same time they sign up for specific shifts with their volunteer team. The deposit will be fully refunded within a few days of the festival as long as you completed all your volunteer shifts.  (Please read the Volunteer Agreement for specifics on the deposit and missing shifts.)  If you are unable to pay the deposit for any reason, please fill out this DEPOSIT WAIVER APPLICATION.


Volunteer Teams

When you register, you’ll need to choose your TOP 3 desired volunteer teams. Although this doesn’t guarantee you’ll get on a team, we’ll do our best to make sure you’re happy! There’s also an option to choose “put me anywhere” if you are looking for an adventure!

Treefort Internships and Apprenticeships

Internships with Treefort Music Fest 2018 are posted on career sites with Boise State University and University of Idaho, and we also accept students from any higher-education program who are able to commute to Boise.  We look for interns studying in the fields of marketing, media production, PR, business and sales, management, film, literature, and event coordination.  No previous work experience is needed to apply – just a strong drive to excel in your field and an understanding of how Treefort Music Fest can further your educational and career goals!


Non-students are also encouraged to apply.

Apprenticeships with Treefort Music Fest are higher-level volunteer positions that provide you with music industry experience and networking opportunities to help you achieve your career goals. These involve 3-4 months of meetings and trainings, and working throughout the duration of the festival in your chosen field. We have opportunities available for venue management and event production. CLOSED FOR 2018.

The U21 Program: Treefort’s commitment to growing a younger generation of live music lovers means we put extra effort into providing a space for exceptional people in high school or ages 15-20 who are hungry for the opportunity to learn. We provide mentorship, shadowing experience with professionals, and strong community support for those that are eager to be a part of the Treasure Valley’s music community. CLOSED FOR 2018.

The Cadets:  The Cadets is a Junior High volunteer experience managed by Kidfort Director Emily Williams, designed for people in 7th through 9th grade, or ages 12 to 15, to experience multiple facets of Treefort Music Fest. Cadets will experience many parts of Treefort for a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to make a music festival happen. A few select volunteer tasks and guided mentorship experiences include artist gift bag creation, photography during the festival, investigating large-scale stage production, and more. For anyone interested in event production and the music industry, this is a great way to see how it works in real life!  CLOSED FOR 2018.
