Treefort Festival announces first wave of artists for 2023

Treefort Music Fest 2023 first wave lineup includes more than 185 emerging and renown artists hailing from 25 states and 15 countries – with more to be announced in the coming months!

Treefort’s Main Stage headliners include fresh and familiar bands, including groovy psych rockers UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA and you better be ready for some girl blunts with the oh-so-fierce, anonymous rapper LEIKELI47, then light it up again for veracious country star (and author) MARGO PRICE, platinum melodic surf rockers SURF CURSE will keep ya on your dancin’ feet, and we’ll all be crossing our fingers for the “beatbox flute” from dreamy R&B performer CAUTIOUS CLAY!

In addition to the Main Stage, there will be over 20 venues in Downtown Boise poppin’ off with bands from all over the globe during the five days of Treefort Music Fest.

Of the nearly 200 artists on this first wave of artists, get ready to be in awe of feminist icon and DIY pioneer ANI DIFRANCO, longform instrumental protest rockers GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR, Atlanta’s alternative rap-turned-emo-punk-pop rocker TOM THE MAIL MAN, soulful pop goddess LADY WRAY, UK’s spoken word artist and Treefort fave KAE TEMPEST, the incredibly soulful CELISSE, forward-thinking noise rap duo consisting of Moor Mother & DJ Haram 700 BLISS, psychedelic instrumental duo HERMANOS GUTIÉRREZ, jazz-forward hip hop group Butcher Brown, psych-rock Italian duo DUMBO GETS MAD, marimba meets garage punks SON ROMPE PERA, rapper and pro skater 454, genre-bending instrumental progressive rock artist COVET, Anatolian psych-pop sensations DERYA YILDIRIM & GRUP ŞIMŞEK and so many more!!
