BOISE -- Organizers say the 2014 Treefort Music Festival increased attendance over last year, but they're still cautiously tallying the numbers.

The emerging music festival saw more than 350 bands playing live music throughout Boise from Wednesday night through Sunday.

New for 2014, the festival included an extra night of music and more related forts, with activities ranging from skateboarding to yoga and beer. That change is likely responsible for a measurable increase in attendance.

The 2013 festival saw a peak crowd of about 6,000 people on Friday night. Additionally, organizers say about 4,000 3-day wristbands were sold in 2013.

How does that compare to 2014?

Our estimate for Saturday, is well over 7,000 people milling around the festival, said Public Relations Director Matt Dalley, who indicated the overall numbers could be higher.

However, Dalley said he was cautious about going into any more specifics until the event's 17 venues reported exact numbers of tickets sold.

It will be a couple of weeks before we have firm numbers about attendance and revenue, Dally added.
