Music, Marathon and The Mission
“On Tap” gives you a heads up about the big events in town and what Muni routes and lines will get you to the party. Look for this feature to be posted usually on Wednesdays for a look ahead to the weekend.
Treasure Island Music Festival
Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Nestled on the bay, the Treasure Island Music Festival delivers two days of music bliss with a panoramic view. Day 1 features the sounds of electronica along with the beats of Hip-Hop, while day 2 hums with the driving drum beats and guitar rifts of rock and indie rock.
Gathered from across the music spectrum, this year’s line-up plays on two stages with headlining performances by grammy award winners OutKast and multi-time grammy nominee Janelle Monae.
Due to limited parking, event shuttles will provide pick-up and drop-off service to and from the Bill Graham Civic Center. Music fans can also utilize Muni’s 108 Treasure Island Route.
Muni service note: The 108 Treasure Island Route will have additional bus service for both days of the festival from 11a.m. to 7p.m.
