Winter is setting in over the Bay Area, as exhibited at this year’s Treasure Island Music Festival. Now in its sixth year, the late autumn festival has since become the staple finale for the West Coast’s outdoor offerings, but this year was quite a way to go out with a magnum set of headliners (Atoms for Peace, Beck) and a stockpile of solid opening acts (Animal Collective, James Blake, Japandroids). Unfortunately, with the temperatures dropping rapidly each day of the festival, less prepared fans left early and missed some of the weekend’s top talent, proving once again that Californians don’t like to think about winter.

Icy winds be damned, however, the sets wound up being both captivating and surreal; from Atoms for Peace’s foggy Saturday experience to the chilled sweat Japandroids singer Brian King managed to work up. It was all worth surviving, even if it means we’ll be dealing with pneumonia come Halloween. Grab a blanket and relive the weekend with a cup of hot Joe below.
