Treefort Music Fest ended five days of music, yoga, stories, tech and much more early Monday morning. The festival took place throughout indoor and outdoor venues in downtown Boise. It was the largest event in the state that has required proof of vaccination or a negative covid-19 tests. Masks were also required of festival-goers.

So how did all these COVID protocols go? And was the festival able to make enough money to keep the music playing for next year?

Treefort Festival Director Eric Gilbert joins Idaho Matters to break it down with us.
