Treefort launches a second wave of groups and is looking for volunteers

Treefort Music Fest is ready to fire all cylinders again.

After skipping 2020 entirely and delaying the annual event until fall 2021, the 10th iteration will revert to its normal spring schedule from March 23-27, 2022.

Meanwhile, details are unveiled.

Treefort has just revealed its second wave of acts: 166 of them from six countries and 22 states, bringing the total to 329 and counting. The second ad is filled with regional and local artists such as Joshy Soul, State of Confusion, The Nude Party, and Neal Francis.

Check full list on Treefort website, where advance tickets are available for purchase. Treefort takes place in several indoor and outdoor venues in downtown Boise, with the main stage on 12th and Grove streets. Three waves of artists are normally announced before the event.

Treefort also recently unveiled details of its cultural “forts” including Artfort, Comedyfort, Filmfort, Kidfort and Storyfort. See the Treefort website for more information.

Want to volunteer? Applications are now open. Volunteers work an average of three five-hour shifts during the festival. In return, Treefort connects them with a five-day pass and a t-shirt. There is a non-refundable registration fee of $ 30.

Treefort has hosted over 3,000 volunteers since 2012, 90% of whom are from Idaho and 10% travel from 30 states and Canada. Since 2012, volunteers have contributed more than 36,000 hours to Treefort, according to the festival.
