TREASURE ISLAND MUSIC FESTIVAL 2012 PRESS

“… offers an opportunity to get somewhat up close and personal with a host of emerging rock and electronic groups—most of whom are still veiled in the independent grace of relative obscurity—before they potentially get discovered by the rest of the world.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“This weekend's Treasure Island festival couldn't help but make you feel lucky just for being there. With only two alternating stages … everyone on the bill is up against the gorgeous natural setting.” —SF Weekly

“Two days of amazing, wildly diverse music in one of the most beautiful settings anywhere—that’s what makes the TIMF one of the most compelling music festivals in the U.S.” —Examiner.com

“If you have never attended a music festival, Treasure Island in San Francisco would be a worthy introduction… TI has an intimate factor unlike most, but carries a lineup to compete with the best.” —SFCritic.com

“The San Francisco skyline, at sunset, from a Ferris wheel on Treasure Island—checked another awesome experience off my bucket list of things I never knew I had to experience.” —North Bay Bohemian

About

Produced by Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment, Treasure Island Music Festival has grown to become one of the west coast’s most-loved festivals capping out the festival season, not just for the fans who attend, but for the artists themselves. With no overlapping sets, Bay Area cuisine, and the gorgeous, panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay serving as the festival’s backdrop, Treasure Island Music Festival is like no other festival experience in the U.S. When the festival began in 2007, it quickly became one of the premiere music events of the fall concert season thanks to its consistently fresh and exciting lineups, selling out year after year. The festival has played host to a number of music’s most incredible names, including LCD Soundsystem, Death Cab For Cutie, The xx, The Flaming Lips, Deadmau5, She & Him, MGMT, Girl Talk, Vampire Weekend, Belle & Sebastian, M.I.A., Die Antwoord, Modest Mouse, The Raconteurs, Beach House, and more.
