For one weekend of the year, hipsters, Burners, and pre-adolescent ravers from around the Bay congregate on the artificial island between San Francisco and Oakland for Treasure Island Music Festival, a destination removed enough from the mainland to give the scene a magic quality. The air’s a little wetter, the grass is a little greener (hehe), and for that one beautiful weekend, we come together in harmony to escape the nightlife bros and zone out near the water with our friends and lovers.
Treasure Island is “Where It’s At” so don’t be a “Loser” and “Go It Alone” (guess who’s headlining this year). Follow our handy-dandy #LazyHost Insider’s Guide to one of The Bold Italic’s favorite music fests and be an “E-Pro.”
Start the party early by taking The Bold Italic’s “Rock the Boat” ferry to the island. If you can spend $35 for an eighth of mids every weekend, you can spend that same amount to get pre-drunk on our OPEN BAR, stuff yourself with SNACKS, and warm up with some QUALITY MUSIC, all before you even step foot on the island. Maybe you’ll even run into me and can give me a hug or a high-five! Remember, first 25 on the boat get a free t-shirt, so get there 4 to 6 hours early (jk, but srs about the shirts).
