Treasure Island On Hiatus In 2017

SAN FRANCISCO (CelebrityAccess) — A year after celebrating their tenth anniversary, organizers for the Treasure Island Music Festival announced that the event is taking a year-long hiatus in 2017.

Jordan Kurland, co-founder of the festival, told the San Francisco Chronicle that after a decade at the festival's former Treasure Island home, the time was right to consider changes.

“A lot of factors went into our decision to take a year off, the main one being that finding a venue was taking a little longer than we wanted,” Kurland told the newspaper. “But there was never a question of whether or not we would do another one.”

Kurland told the Chronicle that the event was looking at potential locations in Alameda, Oakland, and San Francisco, including Golden Gate Park, where Outside Lands is held. – Staff Writers
