If you dance to a different drummer or if you’re looking for more direction, remember there is a Treefort Music Fest app, with the festival’s lineup and a build-your-own-schedule. If you’re attending the festival, have a blast and remember to stay hydrated. The same goes for those of you who have other Spring Break plans!
