Sigur Ros, Ice Cube, more to headline tenth annual Treasure Island Music Festival


Celebrating its tenth anniversary, Treasure Island Music Festival will be returning this year with a delightfully eclectic lineup of artists that will be making their way to the small artificial island in San Francisco for which the festival was named after. Besides hitting the decade mark, festival organizers Noise Pop and Another Planet revealed this year’s event will also be the last time it will be held at Treasure Island. An unfortunate change in locale, Treasure Island boasted a wonderful level of isolation from San Francisco’s urban sprawl, while still offering the best in picturesque views and weather that the bay had to offer.

Among the festival’s headliners are Icelandic rockers Sigur Ros and rapper Ice Cube, who made his Coachella debut earlier this year and seems to be making a number of rounds on the festival circuit, but the genre contrasts do not end there. Other performers include electronic crooner James Blake, dream pop duo Purity Ring, indie funk wizard Glass Animals, Tycho‘s ambient grooves, beach-bum songwriter Mac DeMarco, EDM giants Flight Facilities, electronic-folk pioneers Sylvan Esso, French synth-pop outfit Christine and the Queens, 80’s disco guru Neon Indian, lo-fi garage darlings Hinds, and many more.

On Thursday, June 16 at 10 a.m. 2-day GA tickets will go on sale. Early Bird tickets are available for $159.50, once sold out, the ticket price will rise to $179.50. VIP 2-Day tickets are available for $335.
