Treasure Chest

In addition to all of the amazing music, we always like to provide tons of other fun at the festival, and this year is certainly no exception. Our beacon, the spectacular 60-foot Century Ferris Wheel, will be surrounded by our ever-changing eclectic mix of interactive art installations and roaming performers. Below are just a few of the diverse offerings:

The Porch Stage makes its debut in the Cove, with two incredibly fun acts, playing from 3pm on each day.

Saturday, October 13th
The Rock Project House Band, part of the Rock Project,the Bay Area's premier rock-based music school.

Sunday, October 14th
As a living music-breathing entity, El Radio Fantastique's 8-piece band is a stitched together b-movie creature—part rumba band in purgatory, part cinematic chamber group, part shipwrecked serenade.

Don’t miss the Silent Disco powered by the Music Unlimited service. Head to The Cove to hear the latest dance beats broadcast directly into your ears! Live DJs will spin all day and night for the head phoned masses.

Camp D.I.Y. presented by Workshop is back. Part grown-up summer camp, part arts & crafts lounge and part art installation, dozens of SF’s creatives will show you how to get your hands dirty and make stuff like dream catchers, terrariums, friendship bracelets, wood cut wearable art, screen prints, hand sewn beer koozies and much, much more (there may even be campfire sing-alongs)!

As always, our Treasure Chest vendor village will feature an eclectic mix of Bay Area crafters displaying their unique festival fare.

The (Transport)ation Galleries are back by popular demand. Seemingly ordinary box trucks on the outside beckon you to step in and explore a variety of eclectic spaces. Festival new-comers Samba Stilt Circus, will be roaming the grounds providing energetic stilt dancing and drumming for your entertainment.

At night, the sculptural installations come alive—the illuminated nest eggs, Mosaic, provide a great place to sit and look up to see the ethereal Balloon Chains as they flow with the wind. Or, take in the active fire sculpture Spike as it heats up the Cove.
