Treasure Island Music Festival is an annual two-day music festival that takes place on Treasure Island, California, located in the San Francisco Bay. The festival is produced by Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment (APE).

The first day of the festival consists of electronica and hip hop/rap influenced performers while the second day consists of rock and indie rock influenced performers. Each day the sets are split between two separate, nearby stages, however the performances are staggered such that attendees can listen to every performer. Typically, the northernmost stage is the main stage on which the headliner plays.

The music festival is noted to be rain or shine. Although the weather in the San Francisco Bay Area is typically mild, rain and wind in autumn is not uncommon and poses a challenge to both attendees and performers.[1]

Parking on the island is limited and as such, each year the majority of private vehicles are left in the parking lot at AT&T Park or Bill Graham Auditorium, depending on the year, and a shuttle service is provided to the island. The organizers also claim this reduces traffic congestion on the island. The Treasure Island Music Festival has also been noted for its emphasis on reducing carbon emissions: organizers provide zero emission bus services to the island from the city of San Francisco and emphasize the use of composting.[2]

O'Shea Jackson Sr. (born June 15, 1969), known professionally as Ice Cube, is an American rapper, songwriter, actor, record producer, and filmmaker. He began his career as a member of the hip-hop group C.I.A. and later joined the seminal rap group N.W.A (Niggaz Wit Attitudes). After leaving N.W.A in December 1989,[1] he built a successful solo career in music and films. Additionally, he has served as one of the producers of the Showtime television series Barbershop and the TBS series Are We There Yet?, both of which are based upon films in which he portrayed the main character.

Ice Cube is noted as a seminal lyricist and storyteller and is regarded as a brutally honest rapper;[citation needed] his lyrics are often political or socio-political, as well as violent, confrontational, and aggressive, and he is considered one of the founding artists in gangsta rap. He was ranked number 8 on MTV's list of the 10 Greatest MCs of All Time, while fellow rapper Snoop Dogg ranked Ice Cube as the greatest MC of all time.[citation needed] AllMusic has called him one of hip-hop's best and most controversial artists,[2] as well as "one of rap's greatest storytellers".[3] In 2012, The Source ranked him number 14 on their list of the Top 50 Lyricists of All Time.[4] In 2014, ranked him number 11 on their list of the "50 Greatest MCs of All Time".[5]
