After skipping a year due to the pandemic, Treefort Music Festival is returning in 2021. The festival announced it's coming back, and with "a double whammy."
“It’s very exciting after the last year that we have been through to be looking forward to the future," Eric Gilbert, Treefort Music Festival Director said.
“After the pandemic and everybody being shut-in for a while and not seeing any shows, Treefort is going to be this immense breath of fresh air” Rob Landerman, Woodland Empire owner said.
Treefort 9 will run from September 22-26 in multiple venues throughout downtown. While the event is typically held in the fall, organizers say the 2022 event is already on the calendar — Treefort 10 is set for March 23-27, 2022.

The lineup for Treefort 9 will be announced later this month, organizers announced. To accommodate health and safety, the event will work with local and state health officials to solidify plans.
"Our plan is to have Treefort be as close to what a normal Treefort feels like," Gilbert said. "But at the same time, we also want to be mindful of public safety as we always are so we will be making adjustments as or if needed."
There will be a limited number of 5-day passes for Treefort 9 to align with possible capacity limits. General admission, ZIPLINE, and U21 tickets will go on sale with the lineup announcement later this month.

“It’s the whole vibe of Boise, and it is really fun, lively and it just comes alive," Landerman said. "It brings a lot of business in, a lot of people that haven't been in here before, and then you get to see some of the coolest bands in the world play."
