Treasure Island Music Festival 2011 Lineup Released

Justin July 26, 2011 3

The 2011 edition of the Treasure Island Music Festival is out now, and it’s a good one…especially if you enjoy live electronic music. If anyone went last year (we were there), it was C-O-L-D (so cold), but that is most likely due to the fact that this is the only festival (that I know of), which is on a small island in the middle of the San Francisco bay. But, even with what may be incredibly cold weather, this lineup is very hot (I recognize the bad cliche here). The festival is scheduled for October 15 & 15, 2011 on Treasure Island in San Francisco, CA. Here is the full lineup:

Saturday, October 15th
Empire of the Sun
Cut Copy
Death From Above 1979
Dizzee Rascal
Flying Lotus
Buraka Som Sistema
The Naked & Famous
Shabazz Palaces
Aloe Blacc

Sunday, October 16th
Death Cab For Cutie
Explosions in the Sky
Beach House
The Hold Steady
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
Friendly Fires
St. Vincent
The Head and The Heart
Wild Beasts
The Antlers
Thee Oh Sees

Oh, there is so much incredible music on this lineup. Clearly, for those of you who are more electronically-inclined, Saturday is the day for you with such incredible acts as Empire of the Sun, Chromeo, and Cut Copy. As an added bonus, Buraka Som Sistema will be there (and, this is great…because we were unable to see them at Coachella 2010 due to a conflict). This is really some of the best live electronica today. Very exciting. And, for you Indie/Emo/Rock kids (plenty of those in SF) you have a great day on Sunday (with the incredible headliners, Death Cab for Cutie). Again, this is a great lineup…especially for such a small and intimate venue/festival.

All of us are looking forward to another great (and, hopefully warmer) Treasure Island Music Festival.

What do you think about the lineup this year?

      I agree with you…this is going to be an excellent year! I just hope I don’t need to buy 2 or 3 additional sweaters to wear out there again like I had to last year.

      I agree. This is an excellent lineup…looking forward to being there!
