As festival season, which is seemingly year-round nowadays, draws to a close for 2015, San Francisco sees its annual isolated gathering on Treasure Island this weekend! Every year this lineup invites a wide array of cream-of-the-crop artists and upcoming superstars to get their own window to woo the open minded Bay Area crowd. Though, the party doesn’t start or end at the festival! With preparties and night shows, the entire weekend is jam packed with amazing musical talent, beautiful sunsets, and one breathtaking skyline.

 

Our most anticipated of the night shows is undoubtedly YACHT; kicking off their album release tour at the Independent. They have been on a roll for over ten years now, seeing their 6th studio album I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler release on October 16th, the day before their SF show! Come out after Treasure Island and see how YACHT got their acclaim as incredible live performers.

Treasure Island Music FestivalTickets

 

 

In its ninth year, Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment‘s Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco continues to impress with its lineup’s chock full of worthy headliners as well as the year’s fastest rising talent. Set on Treasure Island and void of conflicting set times, the festival has the added glory of a backdrop that little else can match.

 

This year’s installment features acts like Deadmau5, Big Grams (replacing Azaelia for the better), The War on Drugs, CHVRCHES, Shamir, Ex Hex and Bob Moses, among more. Also of interest are Silent Frisco‘s Silent Disco and Funny or Die‘s Blah Blah Blah which hosts local “battling” DJs and rising comedians, respectively.

 

 

Of all the festivals we’ve attended, TIMF takes the cake as most laidback. With billed acts splitting time between the Bridge and Tunnel stages, there’s absolutely no rush to get anywhere on the island and plenty of time to settle into a nice Autumn daze. Plan for cold nights and try the Irish Coffee.
