Rebranded from RootsNBlues, Treeline Music Fest is owned and managed by Tracy Lane and Shay Jasper, and is the only women-owned festivals in the country. Lane says that the name change opens up new possibilities for future artists lineups and will help attract diverse artists from different genres.

The festival takes place over three afternoon/evenings in the 50-acre Stephens Lake Park in downtown Columbia. Audiences move between two large stages with staggered performances.

The producers of Treeline have adjusted the stage schedule this year. “We’ve also curated a schedule that allows fans to experience the full set of every headlining artists. Unlike other festivals, at Treeline, no one has to choose which headliner to see. We have made it possible to witness every legendary and contemporary headliner every night,” Lane told Missourinet.

Organizers announced that many amenities have been added to ensure that Treeline is a welcoming space, regardless of age or ability. For details, visit
