    Default Treasure Island 2009

    So... anyone stoked for this? Any rumors making their way across the blogosphere/intarwebz/whatever the fuck you want to call it? If the festival is configured like the last two years, with an "eletronic" night and an "indie" night, I'm hoping that we get MSTRKRFT and Franz Ferdinand from Coachella at the least... maybe the Flaming Lips?
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    I really wanted to go last year, but it would have been too expensive with transportation and accommodations. I am hoping to hit a new festival this year, and Treasure Island, Street Scene, and APW are the likeliest of candidates.
    4/8 Summer Camp @ Echo, 4/11-13 Coachella, 4/17 SISU, Dum Dum Girls @ Roxy, 4/27 Ghost B.C. @ Fonda, 4/30 Mono @ Troubadour, 5/3 I Break Horses @ Bootleg Theater, 5/28-6/1 Primavera Sound, 6/4 Nisennenmondai @ Jazzhouse, 6/18-22 Sled Island

    the electronic day last year was one of the most fun days of music I've ever been a part of, I think the only musician who didn't completely impress me was Goldfrapp, and I still enjoyed her

    They haven't even announced the dates yet.

    I did have a horrible premonition today that MSTRKRFT would headline though, so I really hope I'm not right, like I was last year about Justice.

    I have a feeling I'll be going unless the lineup is terrible.

    I really have no idea who they'd get to headline this year though
    chemical brothers live maybe for the electronic day?
    and maybe Flaming Lips for the indy day

    Electronic day was tight last year, I'll probably go again. I like that they separate it into Day I Want To Attend / Day I Do Not Want To Attend too.

    Unless Tool, Prodigy, Orbital, Basement Jaxx, Chemical Brothers (live), or someone at that level is playing, I am skipping TI this year.

    I was thinking Orbital, but they are not available the weekend Treasure Island usually is...

    Basement Jaxx or Groove Armada (Live) would be perfect.

    They don't have the money for anything you've listed.

    But unfortunately, they do have the money for MSTRKRFT. They play for beer and trucker hats right?

    I bet they could afford a live show by The Orb. I wonder what a Shpongle live show costs. I know a dj set runs around 6k.

    Why do douches still wear trucker hats after all these years?

    I'm sure it's perfectly fine to wear a trucker hat if you're a real trucker.

    Truckers usually wear fedoras. This is in retaliation for hipsters taking trucker hats and turning them into an abomination from hell.

    Seriously, the first year with Gotan Project and Thievery Corporation had such a better vibe than last year where 90% of the crowd consisted of entitled teenage hipsters. Basement Jaxx would definitely attract a better crowd.

    It was Justice last year that attracted the bad crowd. It was those people.

    Yeah, but douchey fashion fads are not supposed to last for six years.
