Remember building forts? The best part was deciding who you'd let into your secret refuge.
Well, the first five artists to be allowed in to the inaugural Treefort Music Fest were announced today at 9 a.m. They are (drumroll please) Athens, Ga.'s Of Montreal; Bay Area/Cincinnati folk-pop group Why?; Portland, Ore.'s Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside; Cleveland, Ohio's Monster Rally and Rumtum; and Boise's sweethearts Built to Spill.
More artists on the lineup will be announced Monday, Dec. 19. Check back with BW to see who else will be allowed into the treefort. The inaugural festival is slated to take place March 22-25, 2012, and will feature a slew of local acts, as well as plenty of visitors. A date for ticket sales has yet to be announced.
