San Francisco fans of the Treasure Island Music Festival (TIMF) will need to wait an extra year this time around, as the festival will no longer be taking place on Treasure Island. They can rest assured that it will return in 2018 in a brand new location to be disclosed at a later time.
Although the event will no longer be held on Treasure Island, there are no plans to change the festival’s name, if for no other reason than to pay homage to the historic little island that was home to the event for a decade. Since its inception in 2007, performers to grace the TIMF stages have included Outkast, Beck, deadmau5, LCD Soundsystem, Atoms for Peace, Vampire Weekend, Ice Cube, Justice, The National, The xx, Sigur Rós, Massive Attack, Belle & Sebastian, CHVRCHES, James Blake, Major Lazer, The War on Drugs, Disclosure, MGMT, Fleet Foxes, Zedd, Death Cab for Cutie, Haim, and Chromeo.
In addition to star-studded music lineups each year, TIMF has provided attendees an array of fun activities at the Festival, including the iconic 60-foot Century Ferris Wheel surrounded by an ever-changing diverse mix of interactive art installations, roaming performers, as well as some of the best cuisine in the Bay Area.
Stay tuned as additional information regarding the 2018 festival will be announced in the coming months. For more information on the Festival, go to treasureislandfestival.com.
