Social media network imeem announces “Mutiny and Mayhem,” a nationwide search for two talented acts to perform at the second annual Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco. Through the contest, which is open to both signed and unsigned artists and ends July 28, imeem will select a band to open the festival’s Tunnel Stage on each day of the festival, which takes place on Saturday, September 20 and Sunday, September 21.
The act selected for Saturday’s opening slot will join electronic, dance and hip-hop acts including Justice, TV On the Radio, Goldfrapp, Hot Chip, Aesop Rock, Amon Tobin and Foals, among others.
