After 10 years, the Treasure Island Music Festival is taking a breather.
The two-day festival, held annually since 2007 on man-made Treasure Island, will not return this year, organizers said Wednesday in a press release. The festival is expected to return in 2018 at a different location.
“Although the event will no longer be held on Treasure Island, there are no plans to change the festival’s name, if for no other reason than to pay homage to the historic little island that was home to the event for a decade,” said the release.
Festival organizers Another Planet Entertainment and Noise Pop have yet to announce where the festival will take place in 2018.
The hiatus comes after last year's festival was fraught with heavy rain and other issues. The decision to relocate was determined prior to the festival, as construction for the landmark Treasure Island Development project began in March last year on the island’s western shoreline. This resulted in a last-minute relocation for the festival from the Great Lawn to a barren area on the southeast corner of the island.
