And, as always, it's bifurcated into a day of dance and electronic music — headlined by Girl Talk — and a day of indie rock. Saturday's electronic-oriented lineup features locals The Coup and K. Flay, Public Enemy (making their 25th anniversary), glo-fi hunk Toro y Moi, and the famed Gregg Michael Gillis, who, press materials say, is the first artist to ever return to the festival. Sunday's bill will include Gossip, garage rocker Ty Segall, Best Coast, and headliner The xx.

A collaborative effort between Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment, Treasure Island bills itself as the Bay Area's best "boutique" festival, meaning the lineup is highly curated, juxtaposing tentpole acts with obscure gems. This year is no exception. Two-day tickets are on sale now; look for single day tickets this Friday.
