Treasure Island, the scenic music festival set on the outskirts of the bay area in San Francisco, CA has become a fan favorite among festivals goers and performers alike. Known for its stunning views and rather intimate setting compared to other festivals, expectations were set high for this years’ rendition of the fest, which took place over the Oct.15-16 weekend and showcased an impressive lineup including Ice Cube, Sigur Ros, ZHU, Glass Animals, James Blake, and Purity Ring among others.

Treasure Island even issued a statement early Sunday morning stating their remorse and sincerity to do anything in their power to make the second day of the festival as great as possible.


Treasure Island’s statement on Sunday morning:

So without further ado..
