Tame Impala To Headline Treasure Island Music Festival

first_imgTame Impala will headline Treasure Island Music Festival when the gathering returns on October 13th and 14th. This year’s event will herald the festival’s move to a new home at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland, California, following a one-year hiatus.Other artists on the bill for Treasure Island include A$AP Rocky, Silk City (Diplo + Mark Ronson), Lord Huron, Santigold, Courtney Barnett, Jungle, Hiatus Kaiyote, and the Tame Impala-affiliated psych-rock outfit Pond. Treasure Island announced a hiatus last year after a decade at its namesake location, San Francisco’s Treasure Island. Organized by Noise Pop Industries and Another Planet, the festival has historically showcased a variety of acts on two adjacent stages. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the 2018 edition of Treasure Island will keep things more or less the same, with interactive art installations, food trucks, and a 60′ Ferris wheel.“It was never a question of whether or not the festival would come back,” Noise Pop Industries co-owner and festival co-founder Jordan Kurland told the publication. “It was taking a year off to make sure when we returned we did it right.”Tickets for the revived Treasure Island Music Festival will go on sale Friday, May 18th.last_img
