The Treasure Island Music Festival always brings in some new, unusual voices to San Francisco. The two-day festival first took place on Treasure Island, located in San Francisco Bay—hence its name. However, due to environmental reasons in 2018, the festival moved to Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland. The festival advocates for zero-emission energy and emphasizes the use of composting.
