TREASURE ISLAND Announces Lineup for 10th Annual Event Oct. 15 & 16 in San Francisco
Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment are excited to announce the full music lineup for the tenth annual Treasure Island Music Festival (TIMF) to be held October 15-16 in San Francisco on the historic Treasure Island. This will be the last year on the Island before relocating in 2017. The Festival will continue for years to come in another location to be named at a later date, but TIMF is inviting music fans to come bid farewell to the island with another amazing celebration that will light up the Bay Area one final time from the island.
Since it’s inception in 2007, the Festival has brought attendees an eclectic mix of music performances with no overlapping sets, and this year continues that tradition. Internationally renowned Icelandic rock group Sigur Rós, who are in the midst of the band’s most intimate tour in a decade that features stripped down string and brass sections and new music, are set to headline, as well as West Coast hip-hop royalty Ice Cube, who will perform on stage at TIMF alongside fellow N.W.A. members MC Ren and DJ Yella. N.W.A. was just inducted this April into The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.
TIMF 2016 will also welcome a variety of international acts including English singer-songwriter James Blake, who will be performing in support of his recent album, The Colour in Anything, released to critical acclaim this May; Canadian electronica duo Purity Ring; UK-based Glass Animals, who are also releasing their sophomore album, How To Be A Human Being, later this summer; EDM pioneer Duke Dumont; UK rapper Stormzy; multi-instrumentalist producer Mura Masa; Spanish indie rockers Hinds; and the English electronic-soul duo HONNE, who are releasing their debut album, Warm On A Cold Night, this July.
Additional acts at the 10th annual TIMF include electronic musician ZHU, who is set to release his long-awaited debut album, Generation Why, this July; San Francisco’s own Tycho and Deafheaven; beloved Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mac DeMarco; one of today’s most exciting up-and-coming rappers Young Thug; Flight Facilities; Sylvan Esso; Christine And The Queens; Neon Indian; Wild Nothing; Kelela; How To Dress Well; and Car Seat Headrest;as well as Oakland-based acts Day Wave and Kamaiyah.
2-Day GA tickets are on sale at treasureislandfestival.com. A limited number of Early Bird tickets are available for $159.50, and when those run out, the ticket price will then be $179.50. Additionally, VIP 2-Day tickets are available for $335, with perks including a preferred viewing area next to main stage, an exclusive tented lounge with full liquor bar, special restroom facilities, VIP food concessions, and additional amenities that will be announced later. Parking passes will also be available for purchase in the coming months.
Since year one at Treasure Island, the Festival has sought to bring attendees an experience unlike any other. Last year’s performances included some special on-stage collaborations with The National and CHVRCHES as well as Run the Jewels and Big Grams, along with numerous other outstanding sets. Past performers to grace the TI stages have included Beck, Outkast, Justice, LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend, Belle & Sebastian, The xx, Atoms for Peace, The Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, Public Enemy, Massive Attack, and so many more.
At Treasure Island Music Festival, fans never miss a note of any of their favorite artists, as there are no overlapping sets. And in addition to the star-studded music lineup, TIMF provides attendees an array of fun activities at the Festival, including the iconic 60-foot Century Ferris Wheel surrounded by an ever-changing diverse mix of interactive art installations and roaming performers, as well as some of the best cuisine the Bay Area has to offer.
This year’s Festival will be a huge celebration of ten years on the iconic Island, building on the memorable music of the past decade and closing out the last year on TI with a crescendo of sights, sounds, laughter, fun, and food.
