We are closely monitoring the status of the COVID-19 Delta variant and preparing for Treefort Music Fest 2021 with your safety as our top priority.

We are coordinating directly with Idaho Central District Health, the Office of Emergency Preparedness at the City of Boise and other City officials as preparedness plans are ongoing.

We encourage all attendees to read through all of our festival communications here and on socials…and check back often. And lastly, we kindly request your patience and understanding during these ever-evolving times, and with your fellow Treeforters —let’s get back into live music together, safely.


All attendees, vendors, staff, artists, volunteers, performers and anyone aged 12 and older will need to have proof of vaccination against Covid-19 (physical or digital card accepted, so is a photo of vaccination card from your phone) OR have proof of a negative PCR test (the nasal swab one) within the past 48 hours. Upon proof of documentation, you will receive your “TMF Pre-Check” wristband that is to stay on your wrist, like your pass, for the day(s) you’re attending Treefort.

Upon entry, we are requiring all guests to:

  1. Provide proof that they are vaccinated against Covid-19.
  2. Provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test within the past 48 hours.

Vaccinated? Tested negative for COVID-19 48 hours before Treefort? Download Bindle to show that you are COVID clear ✔️

Bindle gets you into the fastest pre-check line before picking up your wristband, provides privacy during pre-check (our team only sees if you are cleared, not whether you are vaccinated or testing neg.) + the convenience of not carrying around your vaccine card or neg. test.

Download Bindle today – we’ll see you at the Treefort Pre-Check Party Zone!!


Documentation will be checked prior to receiving your Treefort wristband in the TMF Pre-Check Party Zone where you also will be able to go through a health screening and rapid testing if you don’t have proof.

  • Health officials will be volunteers and they will match your ID to your proof of vaccination or test results.
  • We won’t collect, save or keep any of your data. It’s simply used to verify proof and proceed into the festival.
  • Download the Bindle app to streamline the proof of vaccination/proof of negative test results.
  • We will have an actual party zone — music, drink tokens, hang out with friends, etc.
  • Once you receive your COVID CLEAR wristband, you may proceed to pick up your passes/tickets at the Treefort Box Office.
  • Masks are required while you’re in the TMF Pre-Check Party Zone.
