Treefort Music Fest has announced the first part of its lineup for 2020, which will be headlined by Chromatics and Japanese Breakfast. The first wave of artists listed includes a diverse array of genres and styles, from electronic and indie rock, to underground hip-hop “post punk, ambient and experimental sounds,” and “new era jazz,” according to a press release. Joining the indie rock mainstays at the top of the bill, psychedelic singer-songwriter Omar Apollo, soulful New Orleans rapper Pell, and alt-hip-hop producer Prefuse 73 ensure a well-rounded roster for the Boise, Idaho-based festival.
Along with the music lineup, Treefort has shared some of the events planned for the other “Forts” that make up the festival’s weeklong assortment of speakers, standup comics, poets, and chefs, as well as early access to Filmfort, Hackfort, and Yogafort.
