    damn. I'm going to wait until the street scene lineup is released before committing to this fest... But there is a good chance I am going.

    hmm street scene is that same weekend...think they might share a couple acts. I remember in 2006 when Rock the Bells was the same weekend as Street Scene wu-tang clan played street scene one day and rock the bells the next. People could easily play Street Scene on the 19th and then Treasure Island on the 21st. I think the Raconteurs and Vampire Weekend are looking good.

    I didn't even see Goldfrapp. I might go to Saturday, then.

    After seeing Vampire Weekend at Coachella, I'm pretty sure I never need to see them again. :yawn:

    Raconteurs, on the other hand, were fantastic.

    2-day presale tickets are only $99. That's a good enough deal for me to go.

    I've seen vampire weekend 3 times in the past 6 months, and that is all I will need for the rest of the year.

    I'm really surprised Amon Tobin is not a big deal on these boards. He doesn't tour much and he kicks major ass. That alone should be a big endorsement for Saturday.

    It's worth $100 to see Raconteurs, Goldfrapp, Justice, CSS, Spiritualized alone. Too bad I don't live in SF.

    Too bad Hot Chip and Vampire Weekend are there.

    Unfortunately, no. I'd want to go to Saturday, but I will be coming off of my 3 weeks in Hawaii, so I think traveling will be kept to a minimum for a little bit afterwards.

    This turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting! Too bad it's the same weekend as ATP NY... I stand by my choice though.

    This is one of the worst lineups I've ever seen.

    I would see Raconteurs and Amon Tobin. That's it. Fuck the rest, especially Vampire Weekend.

    Then dont bother, and dont take this back when they add some other cool acts.



    Tempting, I need to see how some of these artists are going to do about playing down here right before or after. Plus they might be on the Street Scene Line up too.

    Shit I just remembered. I have yet to see Justice even remotely close to sober. Guess, I'm gonna be blackout at Treasure Island Festival.

    Hmm... I'm tempted to try and go. A festival on an island sounds fun. I like that lineup for that price, but I also was thinking about going to Monolith. I'll have to just choose one festival around that time. I'll have to consider Street Scene too if the lineup is good.

    You people are fucking dumb if you think partying in the Qualcomm parking lot or dusty del mar fairgrounds or wherever that abomination is now would even be close to treasure island.

    I live in the SF area, so I'll almost certainly go to one day; school would make both days impossible, I fear.

    This lineup rules!

    I hope they add (from Monolith Festival) The Cribs, Sharon Jones, Del, DIOYY, Pop Levi and American Bang.

    Of course I don't think that. I live in San Diego though, if there are enough bands I want to see, it would save me a lot of money to not have to get to SF.

    There's slated to be 28 acts total, so it's looking like 6 more adds. I remember last year that most of the late adds were early Tunnel Stage acts, so I'm not really expecting anything huge.


    Sharon Jones on the Main Stage performing an early evening set on a cool night with the kickass skyline would send up some nice fucking vibes though.

    I really dislike Hot Chip and Tegan and Sara. I'll just ride the Ferris Wheel during their sets.

    The Raconteurs, Spiritualized and The Kills all in one day really excites me.
