2012 Treasure Islands Music Festival

Mixtape: 2012 Treasure Island Music Festival Mix (Podcast #288)

The Treasure Island Music Festival quickly became one of the most reliable heights of festival season, and the sixth installment features the return of Bay Area favorites like M83 and Girl Talk as well as the local debut of Divine Fits (the supergroup featuring members of Spoon/Wolf Parade) and a headlining slot for The xx, following the release of Coexist earlier this month. Like any great fest, though, some of the biggest potential highlights lie further down the bill, among the many locals and former locals (Toro Y Moi, Tycho, Ty Segall, The Coup, Dirty Ghosts, and more), as well as bands like Grimes, Youth Lagoon and The War on Drugs, who broke through with acclaimed records over the past year.

This hour-long mix includes songs from fifteen TIMF 2012 performers. It’s a diverse collection that makes as a compelling case to return to the island this October.
