The Treasure Island Music Competition arrives with grocers in East Bay, Oakland

The smaller, milder of the two major pop music festivals in the Bay Area, Treasure Island Music Festivalsoon returns after a year-long hiatus – or arrives at a new location. The event started on Treasure Island in 2007, but that place is in strong development, requiring the move to a new scenic location: Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland, a move that is also the focus of the grocer of the festival relocated to the East Bay.

Promoters Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment, the promoter of Outside Lands and others, are returning on October 13th and 14th with the festival (still called the Treasure Island Music Festival). Headliners are Tame Impala, A $ AP Rocky, Silk City, Pusha T, Courtney Barnett and more. And to match the music, they have 20 grocery vendors, about half of them with roots or locations in East Bay.
