Treasure Island Fest Adds Rare Joanna Newsom Performance to Lineup

Joanna Newsom
If you find this this year's Treasure Island lineup a little light on pedal harps, oddly high-pitched voices, and Northern California female songwriters who are also models, we've got good news: Joanna Newsom was just added to the bill!

The 30-year-old Nevada City native is set to play the festival's second day, Sunday, Oct. 14, along with The XX, M83, Best Coast, and many others. As a quick scan of her Drag City page confirms, Newsom isn't exactly a regular on the tour circuit. So if you missed her incredible performance with Phillip Glass at last month's benefit for the Henry Miller Memorial Library, this may be your next best bet to catch her in the top half of her native state.

Also added to the Treasure Island lineup today was buzzy Chicago duo Wild Belle. Check out the full lineup while you're at it. Tickets to the festival are now on sale.
