Bands That Rock: The MFW Picks For Treefort Music Festival

The Music Festival Wizard 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 Wizard have on their wishlist for Treefort:
