The lineup also includes Public Enemy (marking their 25th Anniversary), a rare festival appearance by Joanna Newsom, M83, The Presets, Grimes, Gossip (making their first stop back in the Bay Area since 2009), Best Coast, Porter Robinson, SBTRKT, Divine Fits (Spoon’s Britt Daniel and Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner making their Bay Area debut), Los Campesinos! and Wild Belle. The San Francisco Bay Area will be well represented by Toro y Moi, Tycho, Ty Segall, The Coup, Imperial Teen, K.Flay, and Dirty Ghosts. The lineup is rounded out by the likes of Araabmuzik, Youth Lagoon, Matthew Dear, The War On Drugs, and Hospitality.
But TIMF offers more than just amazing music --- TIMF also has incredible front of house attractions, which offers an eclectic mix of the best Bay Area crafters, poster artists, designers and tastemakers sharing and selling their fantastic creations, as well as amazing sculptures, the second year of the wildly popular headphone-loving Silent Disco, and TIMF’s legendary 60 ft. ferris wheel!
SHUTTLE BUS PICKUP / DROP OFF LOCATION CHANGE
NOW AT BILL GRAHAM CIVIC AUDITORIUM
The good news is that the San Francisco Giants have heroically advanced to the National League Championship Series. However due these circumstances, we have to move the shuttle bus pickup/drop off location from Lot A at AT&T Park to the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium to accommodate the NLCS.
Bill Graham Civic Auditorium is located at 99 Grove Street in the heart of San Francisco, adjacent to a number of MUNI lines and the Civic Center BART station. Click Here for the Map
There will be a complimentary bike valet at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
If you are planning on driving, parking is available at several lots in a three block radius of the Bill Graham Civic, including the Civic Center Garage which is adjacent to the BGC. The garage entrance is off of McAllister Street between Polk Street & Larkin Street. Parking rates vary.
All general admission and VIP tickets include complimentary bus pick-up from the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco to and from the festival site on Treasure Island. You DO NOT have to have tickets in hand to board the shuttle and you will be able to purchase tickets at the box office if they are still available. Shuttles will run on a continuous loop throughout the day beginning at 11:00am.
