For its 11th year, Treasure Island Music Festival celebrated with a variety of music, Bay Area culture, and fascinating art. Following its 2017 hiatus, the event relocated to the beautiful Middle Harbor Shoreline Park. The new venue was bigger than previous locations and had a stunning view of Downtown San Francisco. This weekend, they drew over 23,500 attendees.
The lineup featured a combination of hip-hop, alternative, dance, and electronic acts throughout the two-day festival. They hosted Tame Impala, Asap Rocky, Silk City, Lord Huron, Santigold, Jungle and Pusha T among others.
Standout electronic acts started on Saturday with Silk City, a collaborative project between Diplo and Mark Ronson. They stole the main stage with vibrant tracks - including their latest hit, "Electricity." French duo Polo & Pan rocked the City Stage with vibrant and euphoric tunes. Moses Sumney shook the crowd as well, belting out melodic songs. He was featured earlier this year in Flume's track "Weekend."
