Treefort Music Fest Named Boise’s 2015 Cultural Ambassador

Treefort Music Fest has been declared the City of Boise’s cultural ambassador for 2015. Mayor Dave Bieter announced that the Boise festival, which features incredibly diverse and creative components, would receive the honor in its fourth year of existence. Treefort Music Fest will also receive a $25,000 grant recognizing the festival’s positive impact on the city’s visibility, economy and cultural scene. The role of cultural ambassador of the city for Treefort includes acting as cultural liasons, hosts, and delegates for the city, with out-of-town industry representatives, artists, and more.

“The Treefort team couldn’t be more excited, flattered or honored that the city has decided to bestow this responsibility upon us,” said Eric Gilbert, director of Treefort Music Fest. “From the beginning, our passion has been sharing Boise with touring bands and music and art lovers from all over, while strengthening our local music scene. This new designation is a natural fit for our core mission.”

Treefort Music Fest is taking place throughout downtown Boise March 25th – 29th next year, and tickets are already for sale. In addition to tons of great music acts, last year’s festival included Hackfort (a computer application and coding element), Yogafort (a yoga lounge), and Storyfort (a literary gathering area). Additions for next year include skateboard and comedy ‘forts’. The first batch of artists for 2015 were announced today as well, with acts like TV On The Radio and Random Rab tapped for the five-day event.
