Bands That Rock: The MFJ Picks For Treefort Music Festival

The Music Festival Junkies are heading to the Treefort Music Festival this weekend (March 22-25) and with over seventy acts, it’s going to be a challenge trying to sample everything that Treefort has to offer. The key to seeing everything at a music festival is this — don’t try to see everything. Pick a few bands that interest you and try to make their sets. Here’s a few of the acts that the Music Festival Junkies have on their wishlist for Treefort:

Tim Blood and the Gut Panthers

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.

    The Soft White Sixties rocked the Red Room! In fact, the whole Red Room lineup Friday night pretty much kicked ass. THanks for introducing the band to me. Good reco!
