“One of the most challenging things about booking a festival these days is keeping the programming unique from all the other festivals across the country, let alone the Bay Area itself. When we started Treasure Island in 2007 the only other local festival of note was Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, but nowadays there are quite a few to contend with,” said Jordan Kurland, cofounder of Brilliant Corners Artist Management and Noise Pop Industries, in a news release.

“Since the beginning, we have purposefully put an emphasis on electronic, hip-hop and dance music on Saturday, with more indie and experimental rock on Sunday for Day 2. When planning the future of the fest, our team talked a lot about whether or not this format needed to be updated. Ultimately though, we all came to the realization that this programming is one of the core offerings that makes Treasure Island a truly unique and memorable experience, and that we should stick to it moving forward. With this format in mind, I can definitely tell you that the entire team and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how the lineup came together this year,” Kurland said.
