Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment have announced the third annual Treasure Island Music Festival will take place on Saturday, October 17 and Sunday, October 18, 2009. Saturday will feature two stages of electronic and dance oriented acts and Sunday will feature a compelling line up of national and local indie rock artists.

This two-day boutique music festival will continue its tradition of providing a strong, diverse musical lineup smack-dab in the middle of the San Francisco Bay on historic Treasure Island. There will also be interactive activities for the audience, including a 60-foot tall Ferris Wheel, an interactive arts/vendor village featuring local designers, and an array of healthy and affordable food and beverages.

"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."

Full performer line-up and on-sale information will be announced early this summer.

Hey, if Kevin Arnold from "The Wonder Years" is involved, I'm there. He was my boyhood hero.

I'd rather Tom Arnold from mega hits such as "Soul Plane"

I'm all for Arnold being involved, as long as at the end of the last song he can scream, "get in ze choppah" to whatever band is on the stage, and then Arnold and the band run to a chopper and fly away
