It was the best of times, it was the most rocking of times. Treefort 2016 festival goers say these 5 days in march will be remembered well.
"Treefort has been amazing I think that it's quite fun to see all these different people in here I think Boise needs this," said one Festival goer.
Festival officials say they haven't done the math yet to figure out how people came out over the course of the 5-day festival. With over 400 bands, more than 2 dozens venues plus all the workshops, they say they won't have any stats for a couple of weeks. But from what we saw, it was packed. Just about every concert was filled with an eager audience. Food and ale fort were also no exceptions. It seemed like Treefort 2016 was the place to be for just about anyone. Everyone has their favorite thing about the festival.
"Probably getting to see my friends that I haven't seen in a long time," said 9-year-old music lover Ellie Shandor.
"A lot of good food, good beer. Good times man, really no complaints," Said another festival goer.
But it's not just the crowd that thinks so highly of Treefort. Musicians are also giving their praise. Some say it's a festival that works in harmony with the city.
"It seem to maintain a local sort of community and have local bands playing and everybody is stoked on it and they do a good job. They take over the city but don't destroy it," explained Bim Ditson of the band And And And.
While Treefort 2016 is just about said and done, so many say their already looking forward to next year's festival.
