BOISE -- The Treefort Music Festival returns for 2013 with headliners Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Camper Van Beethoven, and local superstars Built to Spill. The event runs from Thursday March 21st through Sunday the 24th.

Tickets on sale here

The festival will feature more than 250 up-and-coming artists from through the Pacific Northwest, Southern California, and as far away as the U.K.

There's also 104 bands from the Treasure Valley, Twin Falls, Moscow, and various other Gem State locations.

That means a major part of the soundtrack will be played by Idaho artists, including standout Trevor Powers who started the up-and-coming Boise band Youth Lagoon.

Powers, who just dropped his latest album, titled Wondrous Bughouse, has developed a national fanbase, due in part to his unique Youtube music videos.

Festival press coordinator Matt Dalley said the festival's growing popularity has made it a major destination for local acts such as Youth Lagoon.

"Treefort is a great place to see some of your favorite well known bands, but also get clued-in on some up-and-coming local talent," Dalley said.

While you can find a complete listing (and descriptions) of all 250+ bands on the Treefort Music Festival website, here's a quick breakdown for KTVB viewers.
