Treasure Island
Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment are thrilled to announce the inaugural Treasure Island Music Festival, a two-day celebration that will feature a stellar line up of internationally renowned artists. Saturday, September 15th focuses on electronic and dance oriented acts with an eclectic bill including Thievery Corporation, DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist, Gotan Project, M.I.A., Ghostland Observatory and Zion I. Sunday September 16th features the best and brightest in indie rock with Modest Mouse, Spoon, Built To Spill, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, M. Ward and Earlimart. In addition to the above acts, there will be a second stage featuring up and coming and local bands.

Conceived by the creators of the Noise Pop Festival, one of the nation’s longest running independent music festivals, and Another Planet Entertainment, independent promoter based in Berkeley, CA, the Treasure Island Music Festival not only boasts an amazing line-up but will take place in a very unique setting - smack dab in the middle of the San Francisco Bay. It is the first music-based event of this scale and scope to be held on the man-made island that was originally built to house the 1939 World’s Fair.

"Another Planet Entertainment is very excited to partner with Noise Pop in bringing this unique festival to a one-a-of-a-kind location. The Treasure Island Music Festival promises a diverse aesthetic each day in one of the most picturesque spots in the Bay Area," states Allen Scott, Vice President of Another Planet Entertainment.

"San Francisco does not currently have a diverse, indie-leaning outdoor event in or near the city," adds Noise Pop co-owner Jordan Kurland, "Our goal with Treasure Island is to establish a festival that mirrors what we've been able to accomplish with Noise Pop in the last 15 years: to present important, independently minded artists in a tasteful manner while providing a great experience for both the artists and fans."

The two-day festival will also include plenty of interactive activities, a vending village featuring local artists and designers, as well as a diverse array of food and beverages. In the same manner that the Bay Area has long been a leader in environmental initiatives, the festival will not only implement green standards but hopes to entertain and educate concert goers with a few simple ways they can bring conservation efforts to their day-to-day lives.

Treasure Island Music Festival runs from 12:30PM to 10 PM each day. Single day tickets cost $58.50, Two-day tickets cost $110 (limited quantity). There will also be a VIP four-pack available, which includes four VIP tickets to one day of the festival, one VIP parking spot, preferred viewing area, VIP Lounge with full bar and other amenities.

An incredible idea!! A++ as far as having a an giant two day festival out there. It's realy nice, amazing veiws in all directions & no one ever goes there. But so far I too am quite unimpressed with the line-up. =(

Also it's gonna be interesting to see how that 1 tiny onramp to the island is going to handle thousands of people.

Nay-Fucking-Say is all Im gonna do about this fest that is only a very short drive from my place.

I love the bay area with a serious passion and appreciate the hanful of cool kids that love a good jam scene (mostly transplants) but WTF is up with kid's taste in music out here?!?!?!?!!?!

a few solid acts, but its going to suck overall

Modest mouse seems like the only reason not to go... Im must start the movent to end bland jam... or as i call it "Ultimate Beige Music of No Groove" God damn it... you pussies need to listen to some funk music. Bland jam is like the next closest thing to emo if it isnt all-ready. dont mind me though i never heard of any of those bands... I just dislike mouse enough to say that.

ken kessey needs to thumb your eyeballs like a bowling ball and expand your minds because apparently you're not open enough to experience new music...

Line up, sh-line up. We are in the east bay and can't park on the island so we have to cross the &%$@ing bridge and take the shuttle from SBC park. (bleep) the penisula-centric organizers, I ain't goin'. Maybe in 2015 when there's a bike lane on the bridge.

The only way I would go is to see Modest Mouse destroyed by a giant mouse trap...

i'm quite surprised at the general dislike for modest mouse on these boards. whatever i guess! and calling a group of people "pussies" based on their music choice? how sophisticated. ignorance is bliss- but it's still ignorance.

I'm new to San Francisco, and Treasure Island looks really cool.

...As far as the line up goes though...

think maybe I'll skip it this time.
