On Tuesday morning, Another Planet Entertainment released the full lineup for the 2012 Treasure Island Music Festival, and it's a doozy. This year's headliners include Girl Talk, Public Enemy, The XX and M83.
As done in years prior, the sixth annual sonic celebration in middle of the San Francisco Bay has sorted bands by genre, with electronic/dance acts kicking off the festival on Saturday and indie-rock closing it down on Sunday.

The festival runs the weekend of October 13th and 14th.
With parking on the 535-acre man-made island extremely limited (and biking not exactly a viable way to make it halfway across the Bay Bridge), shuttles will run constantly from the parking lot of San Francisco's AT&T Park. Packing thousands of bright-eyed festival goers on buses is a guaranteed recipe for a good time.
The relatively small space allocated to the festival necessitates a setup where the two stages are set up on opposite sides of a single field. Acts on each stage trade off sets, with one beginning the moment the previous one finishes. There's no waiting and no missing anything--it's an ideal situation
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 27. In the mean time, listen to our playlist below and then check out videos from some of the bands performing:
