"Idaho's Treefort is better than the mega-festivals" - Noisey - VICE

"There is a different category of festival that Treefort Music Fest in Boise falls into. It’s the type that takes over a whole town, utilizing every venue space it can find to book bands both big and small."
- Consequence of Sound

"In Boise, there’s a club you want to belong to. It’s a club that loves music and the all of the arts, celebrates the Pacific Northwest homegrown passion and gathers each year for Treefort Music Fest."

    A great compliment to the "fort" family of activities offered at Treefort Music Fest. When you need a break from the music or simply time to rest your feet, Film Fort has an awesome screening waiting, often with filmmakers in attendance.
