Okay, we were apparently so dizzy from learning about Outside Lands’ impressive lineup that we almost neglected the Bay’s other, just-as-major music bash. Well, tidbits about the must-hit Treasure Island Music Fest just rolled in — blindsiding us with greatness! The juicy deets (i.e. the lineup!) are finally here and the jaw-dropping acts are a-plenty.
Taking place October 13 and 14, the two-day concert will be headlined by Girl Talk and The XX. And while those two acts are enough to catch our undivided attention, the legendary list doesn’t end there. From Public Enemy throwing down for its 25th anniversary to M83, Grimes, Best Coast, and so many more, each day promises equal amounts of awesome tunes. We’ll give you a sec to catch your breath. Okay, ready for the next bit of news? Tickets go on sale today! We’re amped to say the least. We swear this lineup will be music to your ears (and it literally can be by checking out the Treasure Island Music Festival 2012 mix here). Score tickets fast folks, we bet they'll be gone in a flash. Peep the full list below!
