Treefort has done it again. Although the Boise music festival is operating within the shade of a massive forest made up of much larger, more widely recognized trees, such as the well known Coachella, SXSW, or Pitchfork trees, they don’t seem to be in the same business of growing in areas like circumference, height, or sponsorship money. They’re more concerned with the quality of the water it receives, the intricacy of the bark that coats it’s trunk, or the local businesses that it supports. Despite what a “fat cat” agency would advise, Eric Gilbert & co. reject any corporate sponsorships and still continue to bring the City of Trees something to be proud of, a music festival that everyone can enjoy, and a place where the porta-potty line starts a respectable 10 feet back (see image below). Treefort is now in it’s fourth year and it proves to be a place where you can still see your favorite touring bands (YACHT, Trampled by Turtles, Emily Wells, TV on the Radio, Built to Spill) while discovering new talent (Clark and the Himselfs, Fauna Shade, Thunderpussy). Above all, we had fun, and that’s what it’s all about. Highlights below…
