Noise Pop and Another Planet Tuesday announced the return of the Treasure Island Music Festival. The 11th annual festival, which took 2017 off, will return to a new location: Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland.
The festival will be held October 13 and 14. The producers said the festival’s traditions, including a carefully curated lineup focusing on electronica, hip-hop and indie rock and pop will continue. Like its former location, Treasure Island, Middle Harbor Shoreline Park offers stunning views of San Francisco, the Bay Bridge and the Bay. The location just hosted Blurry Vision Fest last weekend, and previously staged other performances, such as the Mumford and Sons’ Railroad Revival Tour.
“We are excited to finally reveal the next chapter of our Festival, which is coming to Oakland this October,” Another Planet Executive Vice President Allen Scott said in a news release. “The city’s vibe, culture and diversity is the backbone of the Bay Area, and one that we are proud to now call home.”
The Treasure Island Music Festival was forced to relocate after its 10th year in 2016 due to ongoing development and construction at the original site.
The new location is west of downtown Oakland. The space was originally built in 2004 on the site of the former Oakland Naval Supply Depot, a supply center for the Navy’s Pacific Fleet from World War II until the late 1990s. Since then, the depot was closed and transferred to the Port of Oakland, now the fifth largest and busiest port in the United States.
