Treasure Island Music Festival will return to San Francisco’s Treasure Island from October 13-14th. As has been the case throughout the festival’s six-year history, the bill is split between indie rock (The xx, M83, and Divine Fits) and electronic (Girl Talk and The Presets), though hip-hop also has a presence this year in the form of Public Enemy.

The festival’s first day leans toward the electronic side. Joining Girl Talk, Public Enemy, and The Presets are SBTRKT, araabMUZIK, Grimes, Toro y Moi, Porter Robinson, Matthew Dear, Tycho, and Dirty Ghosts.

The indie-centric second day promises The xx, M83, and Divine Fits along with Best Coast, Youth Lagoon, Los Campesinos!, The War on Drugs, Ty Segall, Gossip, Imperial Teen, and Hospitality.

Two-day and VIP tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 27th at 10:00 AM PST. Visit the festival’s website for more information.

The TI lineup appears to be short of muscle due to conflicting schedule with Austin City LImits half the country away. Missing Afghan Whigs, Metric, Stars, and several other TI-class bands. M83, Los Campesinos! and The War on Drugs making the trek from Austin-to-SF though.
