As Boise continues to expand as a vibrant city, more and more renowned artists are making stops on their way to the coast. The city is renowned for its lively music scene, which is enriched by its fascinating history and heritage, delicious cuisine and craft beer and wine, incredible art, and an impressive diversity of music. One of the reasons the Boise music scene is so united and supportive is that many of the members of local bands often work in the same restaurants, companies, bars and more. This could be a missed opportunity for those musicians, as it's incredibly easy to sell out at venues of any size in Boise.
For 80 years, the Boise Art Museum has been recognized as the central hub for art, experiences, and learning in Boise. This means that any band will surely have quite a following in City of Trees due to their love for diverse musical genres. Rather than looking for top artists who can draw a crowd, the Treefort organizers find a beautiful balance between quantity and quality to attract music lovers from around the world to Boise. Boise's entertainment scene is second to none, and it continues to grow as a place full of music, entertainment, art and culture. Boise's music fans have an eclectic mix of tastes, from grindcore to jazz, folk, funk, hip-hop and everything in between. It should be noted that Treefort, for all its splendor, is far from being the only musically inclined festival in and around Boise.
If you're looking for a reason to plan a trip to Boise other than its beautiful scenery, great food, stunning art or friendly people - coming for the music isn't a bad choice. Gender, social groups or age - basically anything that can differentiate musicians - vanishes when it comes to helping their fellow musicians in Boise. Boise isn't the biggest place in the world, and musicians here understand that it only helps the scene to be kind and supportive of everyone who lives there. Throw a rock in downtown Boise and you're more than likely to hit a musician in the head (although I wouldn't necessarily recommend it). Playing and listening to music has significant health benefits such as reducing blood pressure and calming nerves - basically making Boise a great health clinic.
A regular winner of the Boise Weekly BEST of BOISE Music Venue category, Neurolux has local and independent bands and artists live almost every night of the week. Strangely enough, Treefort doesn't develop in an open desert plain or in a huge field somewhere - but is completely engulfed in downtown Boise for its five-day duration. In conclusion, Boise is an amazing city with an incredible music scene that continues to grow each year. From small venues to large festivals like Treefort Music Fest - there's something for everyone! Whether you're looking for a place to listen to some great tunes or you're looking for an opportunity to perform - Boise is definitely worth checking out.
