These shows, as of press time, still have tickets. Lucky you.

It's not 'till October, but the Treasure Island Music Festival lineup was let loose on the web today -- and tickets go on sale this week. The popular San Francisco fest, created and curated by Noise Pop, this year includes a buzzy, bloggy mix of EDM and chillwave, rock'n'roll and pop.

As opposed to previous years, the split two day lineups (Saturday and Sunday) seem less rigidly defined by genre. Headliners include Girl Talk, xx, the Presets, M83, Porter Robinson, and Gossip. There are some locals in there as well – Tycho, Dirty Ghosts, K. Flay, Imperial Teen, and the like.

See the current list below (undoubtedly, others will be added down the line). Read more »
