Treasure Map

Where to find Treasure Island's 4 best acts


Halloween may be inbound, but you've still got one full weekend to fill before the faux blood flows.

Rock out this weekend at Treasure Island. Though Beck and Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace are sure to pack in the crowds, these are our top up-and-coming acts. Let the mayhem ensue.

Blissed-out chillwave with a healthy dose of low-end groove. If these guys weren’t your go-to summer soundtrack, that’s okay–they make a pretty great winter hot-tub playlist, too.
Sat 3:35p

Major Lazer
All Miley aside, Diplo’s dancefloor alter ego has been getting his twerk on for half a decade which is why you need to catch his madcap, high-energy live show as soon as possible. Even if your twerk needs work, you’ll still want to bring your dancing shoes.

Real Estate
The Ridgewood, NJ quintet blew up the college radio set a couple years back with their jangly guitars and laid-back, bonfire-friendly vocals. Bonus: odds are good you’ll get to preview songs off their upcoming album, due to drop in early 2014.
Sun 5:10p

Sleigh Bells
The duo just released their third full-length album, a pitch-perfect explosion of noisy guitars, sugar-sweet melodies, and dance-floor beats that make Le Tigre sound like elevator music. See Sleigh Bells live and revel in your friends’ insane envy.
Sun 8:30p
