The music festivals just keep on coming. In addition to huge festivals like Bonnaroo and the upcoming Lollapalooza, a new term has cropped up for the smaller music events: boutique festival. That’s as good a term as any, although we prefer festivalette.
The Treasure Island Music Festival, which takes place on an island off of San Francisco, will take place Oct. 16-17. The headliner for Oct. 16 is MGMT, for Oct. 17, the Flaming Lips.
Rounding out the lineup on Oct. 16 are MSTRKRFT (why not just have a whole night of acts with shortened names. Where’s KMFDM when you need them?), Girl Talk, Passion Pit, the Streets and more. On Oct. 17, joining the Lips will be the Decemberists, Yo La Tango, Grizzly Bear and others.
Tickets for the two-day event are $99. Single day tickets go on sale on Friday, though a limited number of VIP single day tickets, sold in pairs, go on sale on Tuesday.
