Ah, festival season. The gift that just keeps on giving. This time, we've got confirmed dates of the third annual Treasure Island Music Festival, taking place Saturday and Sunday October 17-18, on Treasure Island smack in the middle of the San Francisco Bay.
Presented by the fine people who bring you Noise Pop in partnership with Another Planet Entertainment, the festival this year will feature a 60-foot Ferris Wheel, an interactive arts/vendor village and of course two days chock full-o-music. Saturday will feature two stages of electronic and dance oriented acts, and Sunday will feature national and local indie rock artists.
From the painfully pun-filled press release:
"We’re thrilled to once again bring a pirate’s booty of musical treasures to the island in the Bay,” says Kevin Arnold, founder of Noise Pop. “The third edition of TIMF promises to be the best yet as we present another action-packed weekend of premier indie and electronic talent and myriad other diversions in what we think is the most majestic festival setting in the world.”
The full performer line up, ticket info and all the necessary deets will be announced early this summer. Stay tuned to the web site for up-to-the-minute info.
