The last touch ups to the stages for this weekend's Treasure Island Music Festival are being made as thousands of people arrive in San Francisco for the popular festival, now celebrating its third year. Our friends at Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment have put together a stellar line-up for the two-day fest, including headliners The Flaming Lips, The Decemberists, Grizzly Bear, MGMT, Girl Talk, Passion Pit, Yo La Tengo, Beirut, and many others (see schedule with band links and MP3s below).

Passion Pit have had a great year, thanks largely to the release of their brilliant album, Manners. The band will play the Treasure Island fest on Saturday before heading off to the UK to kick off a three week tour of Europe. Of course many people are looking forward to The Flaming Lips, Beirut and The Decemberists, among others, and electro and dance fans will be treated to the likes of Dan Deacon and Brazilian Girls.

The fest will feature some popular Bay Area artists and bands, including SF's The Limousines, Thao, Tommy Guerrero and Santa Cruz band Sleepy Sun. Incidentally, the Sleepy Sun will be sharing a double-bill with Edward Sharpe and The Magnificent Sevens at the Brookdale Lodge in the Santa Cruz mountains tomorrow night before they head up to play Treasure Island on Sunday. Plus, Yo La Tengo will also be playing the historic Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz.

In somewhat related news, The Flaming Lips announced this week that they will cover the historic, legendary album Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. Now that'll be something; let's only hope they play at least one of the Floyd songs on Sunday as a teaser. Here's an audio clip only of Wayne Coyne talking about Syd Barret and performing a piano solo of the Floyd classic "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" on KCRW in 1999, and a live YouTube video of The Flaming Lips playing another Dark Side track, "Breathe."
