Get to the Treasure Island Music Festival

Treasure Island has been molded and remolded many times to fit the needs of various groups and constituencies. In its history, the island has hosted a world’s fair, a navy base, a seaplane airport, a movie set for “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” and a laboratory for the “Mythbusters,” among other attractions. Since 2007, it has hosted the Treasure Island Music Festival, a world-class music celebration that will be leaving the island soon.
  
The 2016 festival will be the last year the Treasure Island Music Festival is held at its namesake location. A change in venue is necessitated because the Great Lawn, the area where the festival has been held for the last decade, will soon be renovated as part of a larger redevelopment project that may make Treasure Island home to skyscrapers and a George Lucas-envisioned pop art museum. Though the festival will continue at another location in the future, its next venue has yet to be announced.
   
To send the current version of the music festival out in style, rapper Ice Cube and the Icelandic band Sigur Rós will headline the event. James Blake, Duke Dumont, Flight Facilities, Sylvan Esso, and Christine and the Queens will also perform, among other artists and bands.  
   
The Treasure Island Music Festival takes place Oct. 15–16.  To find the full event lineup, go to http://lineup.treasureislandfestival.com/.
