Treefort Music Fest will be in full swing in 2016.

In 2015, Treefort broke even for the first time, leaving enough money in its coffers to allow it to continue in 2016, as well as pay year-round staff, according to festival officials.

Along with word of Treefort financials came other fest figures: 
  • Almost 14,000 people attended Treefort 2015—8,000 ticketed attendees; 3,600 Alefort-goers; 1,800 band members and 500 volunteers. 
  • The majority of attendees—69 percent—were between the ages of 20 and 39.
  • Around 26 percent of five-day pass holders hailed from beyond Idaho, with people coming to the City of Trees from as far away as Italy, South Africa and Japan.
  • A total of 433 bands performed at 27 venues.
  • Yogafort and Treefort Film Fest sold out of advance tickets.  
  • About 12 percent of attendees used alternative transportation to get to the festival.
