Festival season is in full swing, and it won't be slowing down for a while yet, as the Treasure Island music festival in Oakland, California has just announced their full line-up for this year's event.
For those of you who are unaware, the Treasure Island name isn't for show. The festival has typically taken place on the actual Treasure Island, a man made island off the coast of San Francisco. Construction on the island had the festival take a vacation last year, prompting a move this year to the Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland for 2018. While there may not be an actual island this year, the lineup should more than make up for it.
Among the esteemed performers at this event are A$AP Rocky, who definitely doesn't need to drop his album already, Pusha T, who we should be getting new music from sometime next week, and "Caroline" rapper Aminé. Non hip-hop acts of note for the festival include headliners Tame Impala, Diplo, and Marc Ronson, among many, many others.
The festival will be taking place from October 13th to the 14th, and according to their website, promises a "festival with consistently fresh, exciting lineups of eclectic, diverse performers with no overlapping sets surrounded by the jaw-dropping San Francisco Bay Area landscape." If that sounds like something you might be interested in, you should definitely check it out.
If waiting till October feels too long, don't worry. You can always take heart in knowing that Rocky's Testing album will likely drop sometime in the four-and-a-half months. Yippee. Check out the full festival lineup below.
