Treasure Island Music Festival is an annual two day music festival that takes place on Treasure Island, California, located in the San Francisco Bay. The festival is produced by Noise Pop.
This live stream is on Treasure Island for the festival:
The first day of the festival consists of Electronica and Hip Hop/Rap influenced performers while the second day consists of Rock and Indie rock influenced performers. Each day the sets are split between two separate, nearby stages, however the performances are staggered such that attendees can listen to every performer. Typically, the northernmost stage is the main stage on which the headliner plays.
The music festival is noted to be rain or shine. Although the weather in the San Francisco
Bay Area is typically mild, rain and wind in autumn is not uncommon and poses a challenge to both attendees and performers.
Parking on the island is limited and as such, each year the majority of private vehicles are left in the parking lot of AT&T Park and a shuttle service is provided to the island. The organizers also claim this reduces traffic congestion on the island. The Treasure Island Music Festival has also been noted for its emphasis on reducing carbon emissions: organizers provide zero emission bus services to the island from the city of San Francisco and emphasize the use of composting.
Treasure Island is an artificial island in the San Francisco Bay between San Francisco and Oakland, and an emerging neighborhood of San Francisco. Treasure Island is connected by a small isthmus to Yerba Buena Island. It was created in 1936 and 1937, from fill dredged from the bay, for the Golden Gate International Exposition. According to the United States Census Bureau, Yerba Buena Island and Treasure Island together have a land area of 2.334 km2 (0.901 sq mi) with a total population of 2,500 as of the 2010 census. The island is named after the novel Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson, who lived in San Francisco from 1879 to 1880.
