Treefort's hype is not just hype; it is legitimately legit... All of the "About" info is real and genuine. Ask anyone who has experienced the magic - your neighbor, your friend, your granddaddy + grandmommy, the bus driver, shop and bar keeps, biz owners, the Mayor, the cops, the teenagers hanging around your block, the coffee mule in the foothills, Lizzo, the Shriners, Built To Spill, the city's special events team, the economists + academics who studied + validated our magic, the 400+ bands EACH YEAR - you get it. Please research us + conduct your own diligence. I think you will agree: THIS UNICORN IS REAL!  Treefort truly will continue to:  - put Boy-C on the map,  - be vital to the community's health + well being = recovery,  - amplify across the community's creative ecosystem and broader economy for years,  - provide a platform to address worldly issues with intention,  - champion innovation,  - advocate for inclusivity and equity, - hold space for emotion and processing, - create opportunities to discover... ...

It's likely that potatoes come to mind when you think of Idaho. It's not without good reason. The state reportedly grows a third of all the potatoes in the United States and the city of Boise punctuates the beginning of the New Year with the dropping of a giant potato.

March 28, 2016
When we think of music festivals, the biggest ones in the country follow a similar roadmap. Within a fenced-in footprint, a culture is created, and whether the backdrop is the rolling hills of the Coachella Valley or the skyline of Chicago, the culture is largely a creation of the festival itself.
