As we drove past the sign at 11th and Front in Downtown Boise on Saturday, I couldn't help but saying what I was thinking out loud. With Ada County rolled back to Stage 3 and the number of COVID-19 cases continuing to climb, I honestly couldn't see how Treefort Music Fest could possibly pull off a concert event of that size safely.

Just days later, the organizers announced that they have made to decision to postpone the ninth annual festival a full year to September 22-26, 2021. They plan on moving back to the spring with their 10th anniversary in 2022.

So what does that mean for ticket holders who had the rug pulled out from underneath them just weeks before the original dates in March? They plan on reaching out to ticket holders via e-mail next week to share options with them. Rolling the five-day pass over to 2021 will be an option that requires no action on the ticket holder's part.

Details on full or partial refunds are on the way.
