BOISE, Idaho — Organizers of Treefort Music Fest announced an update for the upcoming festival set for September 22-26. Anyone attending Treefort 9 will be required to show a negative COVID-19 test result or proof of vaccination before entering any official venues and programming tracks, according to a news release.
Organizers say this is required for all artists, attendees, staff, vendors, volunteers and anyone 12 and older. Treefort also asks that attendees have a mask available as some events or areas may be mask-only at certain times.
The safety of the Treefort community is our number one priority 🧡 All attendees, vendors, staff, artists, volunteers, performers and anyone aged 12+ need to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 OR proof of a negative PCR test within the past 48 hours to attend Treefort 9 pic.twitter.com/I7q9Nfo3wF— Treefort Music Fest (@treefortfest) August 11, 2021
Anyone attending Treefort Music Fest will need to visit the TMF Pre-Check Party Zone to be screened before picking up passes and checking in. After proof of testing and/or vaccination, people will get a "pre-screened" wristband that, like your pass, will stay one for the remainder of the festival. Attendees will then go to the box office to pick up their passes.
The TMF Pre-Check Part Zone will open for screening from September 20, 2021 through September 26, 2021. Location and hours will be announced soon.
Rapid testing and PCR testing will be available and free vaccines are available now and during the festival at The Egyptian Theatre from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Vaccines may also be available on-site at the festival, according to a news release.
