Treefort Music Fest early-bird tickets go on sale Friday


Treefort Music Fest made quite a splash during its second year in Downtown Boise.

The indie-centric, multiple-venue event doubled its number of bands in 2012 — to 280-plus — and attracted more than  6,000 people for acts ranging from Delicate Steve to Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.

So if you’re one of those music geeks already salivating at the prospect of year three, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a few bucks in your checking account Friday.

That’s when early-bird tickets go on sale for the reaaaaaaally sick price of 50 clams. After the first 200 are sold, the price goes up to the regular $119.

Here’s the official press release from organizers:

Two hundred Treefort Music Fest 2014 4-day passes will go on-sale at 10 AM MST on Friday, September 27.
