Every summer, audiophiles descend on Treasure Island for the Treasure Island Music Festival, a weekend of stuffing your face full of churros, sipping whiskey on blankets, getting lightly trampled, having at least one crippling case of agoraphobia, and, oh yeah, listening to tons of live music. Last year, Beck, Animal Collective, James Blake, and Disclosure rocked it out, and this year’s roster is just as good!

Outkast are set to bring their reunion to the Bay, along with Massive Attack, Janelle Monae, Tv on the Radio, Washed Out, The New Pornographers, and alt-J. And that just skims the surface. I could go on about how pumped you should be, but the power of music does it so much better, so here’s a mix to get you ready for Treasure Island Music Festival 2014! Tickets go on sale this Thursday, June 19 at 10am.
