The schedule is out (and below) for the 2013 Treasure Island Music Festival! To preview the Festival in the Bay’s eclectic roster of great performers, here’s a mixtape collecting songs from all of both days’ acts.
Our writers and photographers will be taking in the sights and sounds all weekend long on the island. If you want to join them, buy your tickets now!

TONIGHT, starting at 6pm, we’ll be hosting an evening of bands, DJs, and BINGO, for prizes including tickets to TIMF and The Bay Brewed, and other sweet offerings. We’re really psyched for performances by two of our favorite local bands: Oakland garage-surf-pop band Meat Market, who just released a new 7″ on Suicide Squeeze, and local jangle-poppers Fine Steps, who have a new single out on Volar. It’ll be a full evening of great music and it’s only $3 at the door!
RSVP on Facebook and we’ll see you there!

Every year, Treasure Island Music Festival brings two days’ worth of scenic music consumption to that island out in the Bay. The way the booking pans out, Saturday rounds up most of the electronic and dance-inducing performers of the weekend, leaving Sunday for indie rock enthusiasts. This year’s lineup looks slightly different. Especially for those who enjoy electronic music, the second day lineup for this year’s festival is experiencing a slight spillover of said genre artists — including the relentlessly innovative Animal Collective, the aggressively pop-electro duo Sleigh Bells, and the current king of electronic pop, James Blake.
Full disclosure: this is my first time hearing about LA-based band IO Echo, who is currently on tour with Haim (whether or not intentionally humorous, the band advertises that they’ll be playing ‘Treasure Isle’ on this tour). IO Echo fit perfectly in the ultra-feminine section of the bill – sandwiched between their tourmates, the all-sister group and SPIN October cover girls Haim, and the fantastic Portland-based, female-fronted Deep Sea Diver.
Let’s cut to the chase — aside from all of the additional electronic pop and the femme rock invasion, the Sunday lineup is really killing it with the inclusion of Real Estate. To think, this band’s first few shows in the Bay Area were at tiny venues like the Hemlock just a few years ago! Now with two solid full-lengths under their belts, and another on the way (see album teaser video below), the band will be playing select dates in New York, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, and in San Francisco for the festival. No doubt some of their new material will be tested out on the Treasure Island crowd.
Treasure Island Music Festival takes place Saturday and Sunday, October 19–20. Both single day and two-day tickets are still available for purchase.

From October 9 through 12, the Treasure Island Music Festival will be taking over San Franpsycho’s store at 505 Divisadero Street for a four-day pop-up shop featuring some great parties, including one we’re proud to be presenting!
On Thursday, October 10, we’ll be hosting an evening of bands, DJs, and BINGO, for prizes including tickets to TIMF and The Bay Brewed, and other sweet offerings. We’re really psyched for performances by two of our favorite local bands: Oakland garage-surf-pop band Meat Market, who just released a new 7″ on Suicide Squeeze, and local jangle-poppers Fine Steps, who have a new single out on Volar. It’ll be a full evening of great music and it’s only $3 at the door!
We’ll see you there!

Outside Lands may have just wrapped up, but let’s get real for just a sec – there’s no festival quite like Treasure Island. October in San Francisco means the waning of Indian Summer and somehow the perfect time for outdoor music. Plus the location (not to mention the bay view!) makes the festival feel like a home away from home.
Anyway, the other thing about Treasure Island is that there’s no commitment to go the whole weekend if you only want to go one day. Single day General Admission tickets are sold for $85, and VIP single day tickets are going for $165. Regular and VIP two day tickets are also still available, though as the festival nears they’ll likely run out.
So if you’re super stoked for Beck and James Blake but you’d rather not hang around for Major Lazer, you can just go on Saturday. Or if you NEED to see Atoms for Peace but you need to like, babysit your nieces or something on Sunday, you can still go on Saturday. It’s pretty neat. Be sure to scope the updated day-by-day lineup too. Who knows, both days could be a must-do!

If you were among the many thousands at the 2012 Treasure Island Music Festival, then you know how special the combination of beautiful weather and excellent music was. We planted some cameras at the festival to capture a snapshot of the scene at TIMF 2012. Enjoy this cool time lapse video, produced by The Bay Bridged, which documents a day at this terrific fest.
