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.
