Treasure Island Music Festival

With the hot summer nights in our rear view mirror what more does a Californian live for? Well the next upcoming months (August-October) are a music lovers dream! Eclectic beats, colorful crowds, dance parties, and complete and utter chaos are the embodiment and mantra of a festival in the bay. To be more specific-the Treasure Island Music Festival!

 

Taking its sixth year the Treasure Island Music Festival (TIMF), isn’t your average music festival. Treasure Island is a natural landscape that is hidden in plain sight right in the middle of the San Francisco Bay! TIMF is held between Oakland and San Francisco and has been called ‘one of the most organized and manageable music festivals around’. Sure we have all heard of other music festivals but the team that coordinates the TIMF is on to something. Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment are the promoters for the event and have managed to keep the festival easy and intimate for those in attendance. With 26 bands on two different stages TIMF has made it possible to stagger performances so only one band is playing at the same time.

 

TIMF takes place on October 13th and 14th. The full line-up is as follows: Girl Talk, The Presets, Porter Robinson, Public Enemy, SBTRKT, Tycho, Araabmuzik, Matthew Dear,Toro Y Moi, Grimes, The Coup, K. Flay, Dirty Ghosts, The xx, M83, Gossip, Best Coast, Joanna Newsom, Divine Fits, Youth Lagoon, Los Campesinos, The War On Drugs, Ty Segall, Wild Belle, Hospitality, and Imperial Teen are going to rocking the stage and getting the crowd up and out of there blankets and into full on dance mode!

Don't take my word for it, see what KFlay has to say about San Francisco!

 

TIMF is in a league of its own. The performances along with the gorgeous panoramic views of the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and the island as a whole put the perfect touch to the already idyllic setting for a picturesque weekend! They have officially mastered the craft of putting together a successful, amazing, and simply breathtaking event-that has now turned into a ‘gold mine’. Get your tickets before it sells out, as this is one show you do not want to miss!
