Last weekend marked the sixth year in a row that I've attended the Treasure Island Music Festival. The first year was my freshman year in college with my awesome roommate. Fast forward six years later, I feel like a veteran. I now know what to pack, how to layer, what snacks to bring, and most importantly, where to eat.
I went on the second day this year, which is always the calmer day. The artists are more indie, the people seem tamer, and the general energy is much chiller than the Saturday lineup. I like both but am so happy I chose to go on Sunday this year.
Seeing alt-j play for the second time rocked my world. They sound even better live — if you could even imagine. I also really enjoyed BANKS and Chet Faker. Being surrounded by good vibes, amazing music, and creativity was the perfect way to end my weekend. Plus it made me feel grateful that I got to return to a city that inspires me everyday.
Here's a playlist I put together for Sunday's lineup!
