Treasure Island 2011 Lineup: Death Cab, Empire of the Sun to Headline

Posted By on Mon, Jul 25, 2011 at 10:20 AM


This year's Treasure Island music festival will be headlined by Empire of the Sun on Oct. 15 and Death Cab for Cutie on Oct. 16. As the headliners suggest, the first day will lean more heavily toward electronica, while the second will be more indie-rockish. This year will be the festival's fifth.

Hit the jump for the rest of the lineup, plus information on tickets and parking -- it was all announced this morning and the site has (predictably) totally crashed.

A limited number of two-day festival tickets will go on sale for $99 on Wednesday, July 27, at 10 a.m. Once they sell out, the price will increase to $115, then $125. Single-day tickets will be available for $69.50 on Friday, July 29, at 10 a.m. VIP tickets will also be available for $119.50 (single day) and $219.50 (both days).

The festival will also offer parking on Treasure Island itself for the first time, at $25 per day for a pass. Otherwise, tickets will include parking at AT&T Park's Lot A, with a shuttle to and from the island.

Here's the lineup. Get excited!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
