Treasure Island is a man-made island that was built in 1936 to be part of the World’s Fair. It has been used as a military base, radar station, and was the shooting location for a number of motion pictures and television shows. It had sets built there for classic movies such as the Matrix, Patch Adams, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
The Music Festival does not allow camping on the island, but there are places to camp nearby. Also, children under the age of two are allowed in for free, but there are no strollers allowed at the festival, for safety and space purposes.
