Founded by noise pop in 2007, treasure island music festival has been located on treasure island until this year when it was moved to middle harbor shoreline park. How long until the branding changes to reflect the location change?
Formerly branded by its location on an island, the new location is huddled under the impressively tall container cranes at the Port of Oakland. Each Oakland crane stands 253 feet tall which is about a 25 story building, thus fully visible from all locations in the park. The huge Oakland cranes made a major effect on my psyche and played a major role in my festival photography.
Whether you were there to see Tame Impala or A$AP Rocky there were epic bands to see each day. Who was your favorite act? Perhaps it was Silk City, Lord Huron, Santigold, Courtney Barnett, Jungle, Pusha T, Sharon Van Etten, Aminé, Cigarettes After Sex, Hiatus Kaiyote, Laff Trax, U.S. Girls, Moses Sumney, Alex Cameron, Polo & Pan, Pond, Shame, George Fitzgerald, Soccer Mommy, serpentwithfeet, Jpegmafia, and Gilligan Moss!
