Our friends at Consequence of Sound must have gotten the lineup to the upcoming Treasure Island Music Festival a few days early, and we’re blown away to see a seriously solid lineup for this year’s edition of the annual indie rock and electronic music festival here in the Bay Area. I love that LCD Soundsystem is coming back for a headlining slot, and the emotional and anthemic sets we’ll see delivered from Belle & Sebastian and the National will give me a chance to dive deeper into those catalogs ahead of the festival. It helps that Broken Social Scene and !!! (Chk Chk Chk) will be there, too.
Much like the case in past editions, Treasure Island 2010 will split its two days (Oct. 16-17) between alternative and electronic outfits, with Belle & Sebastian, The National, LCD Soundsystem, and Deadmau5 sitting at the top of the bill.
Other acts set to appear include Broken Social Scene, She & Him, Kruder & Dorfmeister (live), Miike Snow, !!!, Superchunk, Surfer Blood, Die Antwoord, Little Dragon, Four Tet, Rogue Wave, Ra Ra Riot, Monotonix, Phantogram, The Sea & Cake, Phosphorescent, Holy F***, Jamaica, Wallpaper, Papercuts, Maus Haus, and The Mumlers.
Sick, right? Who are you most excited to see? Or wait, this is the same weekend as the Phish in Vegas rumors that are floating around, so maybe I need to hold off on getting too excited myself. I’ll be trekking the Vegas if the opportunity presents itself.
