Best Tipping Point 

Treefort Music Fest's third year

Staff Pick

The folks at Treefort Music Fest seem to have worked the kinks out of the quickly growing downtown music extravaganza. In year one, Treefort took many by surprise, including the Boise Police Department, as thousands of fans--both local and visiting--bounced from venue to venue like pinballs, trying to see every act possible. The surprise was not only the number of people who attended, but also the high caliber of acts booked for the fest. This past spring, festival organizers took TFMF III to another level, adding several "forts" to the program, including HackFort, with discussion panels by local computer scientists, engineers and coders; StoryFort, which featured fiction and poetry readings; and YogaFort, where, yeah, yoga happened. Along with other forts as well, other types of performance art were added, all indications that Treefort was coming into its own. Though TFMF isn't yet in the black financially, fans have definitely fallen for the 'Fort.
