Chart-topping and up-and-coming artists alike will perform in the eleventh annual Treasure Island Music Festival Oct. 13 and 14 at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland.

The two-day music festival lineups over the years have included artists such as Outkast, deadmau5, Mac DeMarco, Beck, Ice Cube, Modest Mouse and Vampire Weekend.

According to a Sept. 26 news release about the festival, the event will not only feature music, but interactive art installations, roaming performers and “some of the best cuisine in the Bay Area,” the release said.

“Since 2007, Treasure Island has strived to create a festival with consistently fresh, exciting lineups of eclectic, diverse performers with no overlapping sets surrounded by the jaw-dropping San Francisco bay area landscape,” an excerpt from the festival’s website says.

Historically held at namesake Treasure Island, the festival is set to make its return after a year-long hiatus at a new location, Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland. The new location will offer concert goers panoramic views of the Bay Area, downtown San Francisco and the Bay Ridge, the news release said.

The new venue will also feature two main stages, named The City and the Town, to host the non-overlapping sets.

Over the years, the festival lineup has featured artists such as Outkast, deadmau5, Mac DeMarco, Beck, Ice Cube, Modest Mouse and Vampire Weekend. This year’s lineup features both chart-topping and up-and-coming artists.

Among the festival headliners is Tame Impala, an Australian psychedelic rock band whose 2015 album “Currents” debuted at number four on the American Billboard 200 chart and was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 58th Annual Grammy Music Awards.

The video for the band’s song “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” has over 84 million views on YouTube.

Tame Impala’s set will begin at 8:25 p.m. on Sunday. They will be performing on The Town stage.

Rapper and songwriter Rakim Mayers, best known as A$AP Rocky, will perform on the first day of the festival. His latest album “Testing” was released in May and included guest features from artists such as Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs and more.

A$AP Rocky’s performance will begin at 8:25 p.m. Saturday on The Town stage.
