Boise’s annual Treefort Music Fest, which presents hundreds of local and national acts at indoor and outdoor settings, revealed its first wave of performers this morning.

The festival will return for its fifth year March 23-27, 2016, in Downtown Boise.

In a move that harks back to Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ memorable main-stage performance in 2013, soul singer Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires has been booked. In a hyphenated word: funky-awesome.

Another strategic booking that diverges from the festival’s up-and-coming artists’ philosophy: Veteran bluegrass-fusion jam-band Leftover Salmon will be part of the event — at the Knitting Factory. That means fans will have the option to buy an individual, non-Treefort-related ticket to that show. But festivalgoers will just waltz in with their Treefort wristbands.

Below is the full list. (Youth Lagoon is back!) Remember, this is only the first wave. Last year’s Treefort was a melodic barrage of five days, 20 venues and 430 acts. If we’ve learned anything over the first four years, it’s that Treefort does not get smaller.

Buy your Treefort wristband for $159 here. The price will increase March 1.
