I got a call from Berg of And And And and he informed we were going to Treefort in Boise Idaho. I just said ok and I packed my camera bags. I’m so glad that I went. I tried to photograph every show that I could. This was a lot of photography to undertake.
Treefort Music Festival is not really the traditional multi-day camping music festival. The staff work with the local venues in town to put on shows over a few days. You buy your wristband, and it gives you access to the shows. There are a lot of shows and the venues are all over town. There will be some planning on your part to really see the shows you want. I tried to see Trampled by Turtles and the line to get in was 100 people deep. I wanted to see Animal Eyes and I knew they were playing at the Reef. I huffed it over there and I had to wait for Jumping Sharks and Jason Webley before Animal Eyes hit the stage. It was the best decision of the weekend. Both of those acts were fantastic.
The real fun part of Treefort, is all the people you get to meet. The fans are so pumped to see their favorite band, and the locals were so nice to talk to. I met so many great people, that I can’t wait to go back.
These are my favorite images from time there.
