Boise’s Treefort Music Fest Returns in September 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic is definitely not over, but we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel here at Treefort HQ and we’re hyped to be prepping for the ninth edition of Treefort Music Fest as a “pop-up” on your calendars, taking place September 22-26 of this year!
As we inch our way into spring, we are developing plans A, B, C, D, E and even F for a safe, community-run festival in the Fall. It might not smell like Treefort or even be experienced in the same way (we just don’t know yet), but don’t worry, you will still only know 23% of the bands on the lineup and you will 100% fall in love with Boise. And then we’re going back on schedule the following Spring (WHAAAT? Two Treeforts in 6 months?! Yep.) so by March 2022, we’ll hopefully have a more familiar Treefort with very unexpected weather patterns.
We are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 and preparing for Treefort Music Fest 2021 with your safety as our top priority.
We will be coordinating directly with Idaho Central District Health, the Office of Emergency Preparedness at the City of Boise and other City officials as preparedness plans are ongoing.
At this time, Treefort will have enhanced precautions during the festival to help attendees, performers, volunteers and staff keep themselves healthy. If we feel it’s not safe to hold the event all together, we will notify everyone immediately.
- We intend to follow all local/state/national guidelines on masking and social distancing
- We are considering adding more outdoor stages and shows
- We are only selling 5-day passes (i.e. no single day/venue/show or fort passes available), with the potential that Treefort 9 could be a “Pass Holder Only” event
- We will follow all local/state/national guidelines on capacity limitations inside of venues
- We plan to have increased hand washing and sanitizing stations throughout the festival
- We will follow all local/state/national guidelines on proof of vaccination protocol, if necessary
- Staff and volunteers that are sick or feeling sick will not be allowed at the festival
- We will sanitize all mics in between sets, panels, and talks
- All those speaking on panels will have their own microphone
- Central District Health inspects all festival venues to ensure all food, beverage, and sanitary stations are up to standard
- Medical tent will examine attendees that are showing any symptoms or not feeling well and may ask individuals to leave the festival
- Trash collection will be increased
