Treasure Island fest relocating due to construction, announced single-day lineups
San Francisco’s Treasure Island festival, which is coming up pretty soon (October 15-16) has just announced a new location. The relocation to a different part of the city-overlooking island that hosts it is due to construction going down on that part of the island. Via SFGate:
Construction on the island’s long-awaited $6 billion redevelopment project is happening sooner than expected, forcing promoters of the annual outdoor music event to relocate this year’s two-day concert, set to take place on Oct. 15-16, at the last minute.
The festival will move from the Great Lawn, the patch of grass overlooking the city where it has been held for the past nine years, to the area around the pier located on the southeastern point of the island, adjacent to the Bay Bridge, according to Another Planet Entertainment, the festival promoter.
Meanwhile, the festival has announced single-day lineups for the weekend, which includes Ice Cube, Sigur Ros, James Blake, Young Thug, Mac DeMarco, Sylvan Esso, How to Dress Well, Deafheaven, Car Seat Headrest, Hinds, Kamaiyah and many more. Tickets are on sale now.
