The eighth annual Treasure Island Music Festival (TIMF) in San Francisco has come and gone, and our lives struggle back to reality. This year's festival graced us with not only some massive sets, but with some of the best weather TIMF has ever seen. And by best weather, I mean, you don't have to wear 20 layers of clothes to stay defrosted. It was warm enough to cruise in your t-shirt for most of the day, and depending on your level of activity, you would've been fine all night long as well. And what would TIMF be without Karl the Fog stopping by to say hi? Temperatures dipped a little cooler on Sunday, but nothing that would keep the rambunctious festival goers at bay.
Once again, TIMF organizers Another Planet Entertainment and Noise Pop did an amazing job of scheduling the lineups and keeping things fresh with a good mix of indie rock, folk, and electronic sets, oh, and Outkast. This year was highlighted by tremendous sets by Alt-J, Zedd, and Massive Attack. A few of the smaller acts that shined bright were San Francisco's Cathedrals, Chet Faker, Banks, MO, Ryan Hemsworth, and Jungle.
By the way, one of the biggest downers about festivals is FOMO and deciding what acts to see while feverishly trying to find your friends before the next set. Well, TIMF is one of the only festivals that does not overlap the sets, so there is no fear of missing your favorite band. Kudos to TIMF for another solid and successful year. See you next year!
