What do an old naval base, awesome music, and sunny California have in common?
The Treasure Island Music Festival!
The Treasure Island Music Festival is an annual event. Electronica, Hip Hop, Rock, and Indie rock performers rock the two event stages over the two day festival. The organizers offer shuttle services to help with the limited parking available on the island.
With a lineup including Porter Robinson, Girl Talk, Grimes, and SBTRKT (“subtract”) this year’s Treasure Island Music Festival was sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Review of this year’s Treasure Island Music Festival
This happened, of course, at the Treasure Island Music Festival, which took place on the decommissioned naval base in the middle of the San Francisco Bay. Two stages, a Ferris wheel, the silent disco, gourmet food trucks, cool merchandise and the ultimate people watching experience awaited those wise enough to attend day one of the two-day music fest.”
Some of the artists featured at this year’s event:
“I was surprised I hadn’t heard of the Coup before, but they were on the top of their game for this show. Style, swagger and porkchop side burns lifted from the 70s. The kickass riffs and drum solos reminded me of Rage Against the Machine, but the Coup had more of a soul vibe at times.”
“Grimes was next, and their three-girl electro-pop sound gained momentum halfway through the set. By the end it felt like I was in a Visa commercial with so much pounding synth bass and young people in ridiculous clothing jumping around. It was the best Visa commercial ever. The enthusiasm for Grimes was electric, with some of the most passionate fans at the festival dancing their neon spandex-covered asses off.”
