The 2012 Treasure Island Music Festival is less than two weeks away! We’ll be providing a variety of festival coverage as we do every year – for today, here is a round-up of latest updates from this year’s festival in the bay:
- *Artist additions*
This is actually old news by now, but just in case you’ve been living under a rock – Joanna Newsom and Wild Belle were added to Sunday’s lineup.
- *Set times revealed*
Speaking of daily lineups, the festival set times have been revealed. As per usual (one of the best aspects about the Treasure Island Music Festival), there are no overlaps, so there’s no risk of missing any band at any given time . . . unless you wait too long to arrive to the island, so plan accordingly!
- *Transportation updates*
On that note – there have been some changes to the transportation options to this year’s festival. As in years’ past, all general admission and VIP tickets include complimentary parking and bus pick-up from Lot A at AT&T Park in San Francisco to and from the festival site. However, festival goers also have the option this year to purchase parking passes in addition to purchasing festival tickets. For those who don’t want to utilize the shuttles but also want to save money on gas and tolls as well as help out our dear Mother Earth: this year, the Treasure Island Music Festival has partnered with amovens to offer a rideshare/carpool option for festival attendees. To help reduce the festival’s carbon footprint and to meet some new friends, visit the festival Transportion page to search for carpool options.
- *Poster design contest*
Ex’pression College for Digital Arts and Creative Allies are putting on a contest to design a poster for this year’s festival. The winner will receive $1,000, VIP tickets, and distribution to all the bands performing at the festival. The contest closes on October 8th!
- *TI artists love San Francisco*
The Treasure Island festival organizers have been asking some of this year’s performing artists what they love the most about the city of San Francisco. Check out interviews with Brian Betancourt of Hospitality, K.Flay, and Britt Daniel of Divine Fits.
- *Night shows*
Last but not least, the Treasure Island Music Festival lineup of Night Shows has been revealed, including the Presents, K. Flay, SBTRKT and more.
So there’s the latest. The 2012 Treasure Island Music Festival takes place October 13th and 14th, and tickets are on sale now.
