Treasure Island Makes Way for Indie Rock

Thumping beats quite for guitars and girls.

    Ninja, singer of South African hip-hop group Die Antwoord, dives into the audience on Saturday afternoon at the first day of the Treasure Island Music Festival.

    After a first day filled with dance music, the Treasure Island Music Festival switches gears on Sunday with indie rock taking center stage.

    Single day tickets were sold-out on Saturday, but are still for sale at $67.50 for Sunday to see bands like Belle & Sebastian, The National, Broken Social Scene, She & Him, Superchunk, Ra Ra Riot and another full line-up on the second stage.

    Music isn’t the only thing on tap at the T.I. Music Festival; there is also a vendor area, with t-shirts priced as low as $5(!), decent food options flanking the $7 beer booths, and a Ferris wheel to rise above the action.

    There are also a few art installations and a bunch of people wearing silly outfits.  If you're going, be sure to dress warmly, and head to AT&T park where you can park for free and ride a plush shuttle out to the island, where no parking is allowed.
