In an official statement this afternoon, organizers of the annual Treasure Island Music Festival announced that 2019's festival will no longer go on.

A fixture of the fall festival lineup since 2007, Treasure Island got its start on its namesake location, featuring the best in independent rock, electronic, R&B and more. After taking a year off in 2017, the festival moved to Oakland's Middle Harbor Shoreline Park last year, coming roaring back with a lineup featuring festival favorites and indie heavy-hitters like Tame Impala, Courtney Barnett, and Santigold.

The festival is now on "hiatus for the foreseeable future." Read the full statement from Noise Pop and Another Planet below.

To our Treasure Island Music Festival family,

It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing today that the 2019 festival will not happen and is on hiatus for the foreseeable future.

Over the past 12 years, TIMF has worked hard to bring music fans an amazing and memorable experience, and we couldn't be prouder of what our teams created together. Since inception, the event has brought the Bay Area an inclusive festival-going experience filled with a unique and dynamic music lineup of performers from across the globe, while taking place in one of the most beautiful festival destinations in the world. Bringing the festival back to life last year following the relocation was a massive undertaking, but with the new issues facing the site location, we feel strongly as though putting on a festival to the degree for which our fans have come to expect over the past decade is simply not possible.

We understand that some of our fans may feel upset by this news - don't worry, you aren't alone as this has been an extremely tough decision to make for our teams as well after having built this festival up to be the amazing event is it today. But the good news is that there are still countless opportunities to support local musicians and local events! Whether it's Outside Lands or Noise Pop Festival, or any of the hundreds of concerts both Another Planet Entertainment and Noise Pop bring to the greater Bay Area each year, there are still tons of opportunities to support and give back to our amazing community in SF.
