In 2016, Treasure Island Music Festival geared up for what was supposed to be a festive 10th anniversary weekend. What happened instead was a torrential rainstorm, which forced highly anticipated acts like Young Thug and James Blake to cancel or significantly delay their sets — an unfortunate way to cap the festival's decade-long run on its namesake island.

With ongoing development at the original festival site on Treasure Island, promoters Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment took 2017 off to recalibrate and seek out a new location. Now, they've announced that Treasure Island will return this year for its 11th edition, taking place Oct. 13–14 at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in West Oakland, the site of this month's Blurry Vision festival. (Though "Treasure Island Music Festival" is now a bit of a misnomer, Middle Harbor Shoreline Park features nearly the same picturesque bayside view of the San Francisco skyline as the original Treasure Island location.)

The 2018 Treasure Island lineup has yet to be announced, but past performers have included Outkast, Beck, deadmau5, LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend, Ice Cube, Justice, the National, The xx, Fleet Foxes, Major Lazer and Massive Attack. Stay tuned for updates.
