Boise, Idaho -- Treefort Music Fest has released its first wave of artists for 2014, topped by Killer Mike and EL-P's Run The Jewels and Wales trio The Joy Formidable.

They'll be joined by Built to Spill, Odesza, Mr. Gnome, Warm Soda, Breton, Saintseneca, Subrosa, Uzala, Boyfrndz, and more. Scroll down for the full artist announcement and announcement video courtesy of Retroscope Media.

Despite its big-name headliners, Treefort Music Fest will continue its focus on emerging artists across many genres at its 2014 edition, taking place March 20-23, 2014. To help you get to know these under-the-radar acts, the festival provides brief descriptions and artist profiles with biographies, music videos, and Soundcloud playlists.

Tickets for Treefort are now on sale and come in three varieties: 4-Day Pass, Zip Line, and Secret Handshake. The 4-Day Pass is self-explanatory, but the Zip Line offers priority entry to Treefort's venues and Secret Handshake, of which only 10 are available, grants preferred entry, a personal concierge, backstage and artist access when available, and a private meet and greet with a Treefort artist. Passes for those under 21 can be accessed by selecting the 4-Day Pass option.

Full Lineup, So Far: Run The Jewels, The Joy Formidable, Built to Spill, Odesza, Mr. Gnome, Warm Soda, Breton, Saintseneca, Subrosa, Uzala, Boyfrndz, Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt, Paper Bird, Iska Dhaaf, Hollow Wood, Magic Sword, Modern Kin, Tangerine, Vikesh Kapoor, Marshall Poole, Hustle and Drone, Psychic Rites, Summer Cannibals, and more to be announced,
