ELEVEN is Celebrating 10 Years of Musical Discovery at Treefort Music Fest!

ELEVEN PDX is proud to have attended nearly a decade’s worth of shows at Treefort Music Fest. A vivacious and vibrant music festival in Boise, Idaho, Treefort has offered space for discovery and artistic inspiration in the heart of the city’s downtown. The event includes a wide breadth of PNW based artists, alongside immeasurably talented musicians from around the globe. Up-and-coming acts and world renowned musicians alike take stage at Boise’s Knitting Factory, El Korah, Neurolux (and more!) in addition to Treefort’s Main Stage. 

In 2015, Treefort became first ever B Corp music festival. As such, the event is visibly dedicated to supporting PNW/Boise local talent and lifting up creators of all kinds. Alongside supporting some of our Portland favorites like Y La Bamba, Aan, Typhoon, Tango Alpha Tango, Máscaras, Childspeak (and truly too many to list), the fest is a source of community and an unearthing of artistic excellence. Before they were huge acts, Treefort hosted the likes of Run the Jewels and Odesza in 2014, Lizzo in 2017, and Jamila Woods in 2018. This year, Treefort Music Fest is bringing forth over 450 acts from 35 U.S. states and 17 different countries around the world.

Treefort 10 Passes are on sale now! A five day pass is $270, ZIPLINE passes are $420, and U21 passes are $150, with a range of A La Carte tickets for single day, Main Stage events, and Treeforts other events: Yogafort, Filmfort, Alefort, and more.

We here at ELEVEN have been fortunate to discover so many artists alongside Treefort Music Fest through live coverage in Boise, album reviews, artist write ups and interviews. Take a trip down memory lane with us as we recount a decade of discovery and gear up for another great year at #treefort10!
