For those of you who have been waiting patiently to pick a day for Treasure Island Music Festival 2016, you are in luck. Today organizers have announced which acts will play Saturday and Sunday on SF’s bizarre little man-made island.
For those unfamiliar with Treasure Island Music Festival, it has a lot of unique features compared to festivals like Outside Lands. First, the acts are staggered and the stages are positioned close together so you don’t have to miss any of the acts– unless you opt to hit the silent disco or comedy shows instead. Also the lineups tend to be split by day, with Saturday featuring more hip hop and electronic and Sunday featuring a little more indie. Lastly, the views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay will blow your mind. To add to the FOMO, this is the last year Treasure Island will be held on the Island, so if you’ve always wanted to go jump on it.
We’ve known the lineup for a bit now, but there have been a couple additions like Sofi Tukker. Check out the full lineups:
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15
Ice Cube (feat. MC Ren and DJ Yella of N.W.A.)
How To Dress Well
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16
Christine and the Queens
Car Seat Headrest
Personally I am leaning towards Sunday, what a lineup to end the weekend. Tickets go on sale Thursday at 10am and they are expected to sell out. Prices are as follows:
Single-day GA $105/ Single-day VIP $195 / Weekend GA $179.50 / Weekend VIP $335
