Treefort Music Fest, a four-day indie and alternative rock extravaganza, is taking Boise, ID, by storm for the second year in a row. The festival is held at various venues throughout downtown Boise, and has an emphasis on emerging music, grass roots DIY efforts (they’re free of corporate sponsorship), and contemporary art. It began as a mini-tour that catered to bands traveling from the South By Southwest Festival to the Northwest, and is considered an up-and-coming SXSW. This year, the festy will take place over March 21 – 24, and their official website has just released two rounds of lineups.
