It may not seem like it, but Treefort Music Fest is not as far away as it might feel. Boise is now crossing the halfway mark—the Treefort Solstice, so to speak—on its journey around the calendar.
And to celebrate that shizzle, Treefort is getting set to release a limited number of early bird, all-access passes on Friday, Oct. 19, at prices so low, you'd have to be as crazy as this guy not to snap one up.
After that, wristbands will be rolled out at steadily increasing rates until they hit full price at $119.
From a blog Treefort posted on the subject:
On Friday Oct. 19th—100 Early Bird Tickets for 4-Day General Admission wristbands will go on-sale to the general public for $50 as well as VIP 4-day Wristbands for $199, available online at www.treefortmusicfest.com/tickets. 25 Early Bird Tickets will be available in person at the Treefort Happy Hour Showcase at The Crocodile [in Seattle] during City Arts Fest between 4-7 p.m. While supplies last.
On Saturday, November 1st—4-day General Admission wristbands will go on-sale for $99 online and at select outlets to be announced.
On Friday, February 1st, 2013—Price for 4-day General Admission wristbands will go up to $109.
On Friday, March 1st, 2013 — Price for 4-day General Admission wristbands will go up to $119.
The only problem is that the hucksters trying to sell you on the wristbands have yet to announce a single band you might be buying a wristband to see. In fact, you might wake up early and lay down your Ulysses S. Grant only to find out later that Treefort is headlined by Busta and the Biebs.
Actually, if last year's lineup is any indicator, that probably won't happen. But fans of cruel existential irony can always hope.
Those looking to get in on the cheap tickets should make sure not to dally. Last year's early bird passes sold out in a matter of minutes.
