The beautiful part about Treefort Music Fest is that bands you’re unfamiliar with today will be ones you’re talking about tomorrow.

Treefort will stick to its roots in its seventh year, which is March 21-25 in Downtown Boise: established indie rockers, emerging acts, local bands — and two or three performers your Dad has even heard of. (In this case, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and Cindy Wilson of B-52’s fame.)

If your tastes skew slightly more current, you’ll nod knowingly while perusing the third and final wave of Treefort performers, which was announced today. It includes Moscow, Russia-based feminist punks Pussy Riot, New York indie-pop duo Cults, rapper-singer Yoni Wolf (of Why?), DJ-producer Matthew Dear and Canadian rockers Land of Talk.

You’ll also notice an ocean of local bands led by Boise synthwave superheroes Magic Sword. (That group will go on to perform at Sasquatch Music Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in spring. Sasquatch tickets go on sale Saturday.)

The 442 acts on this year’s Treefort bill won’t actually be the grand total. There’s always a van load of stragglers added late. But it’s time to start studying up. Treefort’s lineup is intimidating to swallow, let alone digest. Mostly, though, it’s a thrill if you’re a live-music diehard.

Treefort tickets are available now, and it’s cheaper to buy early. Five-day general-admission wristbands are $175, but prices inch upwards March 1.
