Coronavirus Postponed Treefort Music Fest. Here's What That Means For Bands & Fans

Mar 16, 2020


Treefort Music Fest was set to kick off next week. The 5-day multi-genre festival usually happens right after SXSW in Austin and brings 20,000 fans of music, technology, film, yoga and more to downtown Boise. 

But last week, the festival announced it would postpone the events until September. Organizers cited concerns over coronavirus, and promised to be back in full force in the fall. 


Joining Idaho Matters to talk more about this decision and what it takes to move a giant music festival is Treefort Festival director Eric Gilbert.
