Treasure Island is an ironic name for an island made of dredged fill soil, stuck inelegantly in the center of a bridge span – until you see the view. This little pile of trash claims one of the most stunning views of the San Francisco skyline across the sparkling waters of the bay.
Every year this under appreciated island hosts the Treasure Island Music festival, making for one of the most gorgeous and scenic backdrops of any music festival that I’ve ever attended. This year’s festival was blessed with the kind of October weather that makes San Francisco’s Indian Summer so famous: sun dappled, balmy, but not too hot to comfortably dance your face off.
Not to be outdone by mother nature this hipsterfest boasts a gigantic metal woman presiding over the festival grounds, two alternating stages with impressive light shows, a ferris wheel and a silent disco that turns into a fairy wonderland when the sun sets.
The three Vixens who attended on Saturday all came away with some sexy, dancey beats that we couldn’t wait to download.
One of the best parts of the music festival experience is the combination of seeing your favorite groups perform live (nothing beats Chromeo performing When the Night Falls while night was actually falling) and being exposed to new bands that you might not have heard of before. This Vix Mix is a combination of our old and new favorites from the TI Festival.
