Treasure Island Festival announces lineup, including DFA 1979, Flying Lotus, and Explosions in the Sky; Robert Louis Stevenson curates his own stage

For Treasure Island Festival’s fifth anniversary, they’re pulling out all the stops this fall. Not only have they just announced a sweet lineup (see below), but they also figured out a way to bring festival namesake, author Robert Louis Stevenson, back from the dead. Zombie R. L. Stevey will be curating his own side-stage too, sponsored by Long John Silver’s. The lineup for the side stage has yet to be revealed, but something tells me that Captain Flint and The Pirates are a shoo-in for a headlining spot.

The whole shindig will go down on October 15 and 16 on Treasure Island, which is off the coast of Yerba Buena Island in the San Francisco Bay. Tickets go on sale this week via the Treasure Island website.
