May 17: One Day Before T-day.

Today is the last day to buy an advanced ticket to be entered to win raffle items. Head on over to the ticket page and do yourself a solid.

Treasure Fest II starts tomorrow and we couldn't be more excited. We have 60+ bands and we are stoked about all of them. Make sure you stop in at check in (Snug Harbor) tomorrow and Saturday (only if you didn't check in on Friday). Check will start around noon but for the most part the peak check in times are 2-5pm on both days. If you miss check in, might wrap up around 6pm, then you are a terrible person. Just kidding, ask the door guy at Snug Harbor and he should be able to help you.

If you see someone with a lanyard then ask them questions. They are volunteers and know all the answers to the secrets of the universe. I kid you not. If you as a patron see something not right or something that needs tending to please tell someone. We want this to be a positive experience for anyone. I will say, consider yourself a deputized volunteer. This is a DIY festival funded in part buy local Plaza-Midwood businesses and with support from you. This festival hinges on the positive vibes from all of the patrons and local citizens. We are counting on you.

Weather is looking awesome right now. Buy yourself some new shoes and bring a bike. No littering, no fighting, no frowns and there will be no problems. At all costs, please avoid the 'noid. If you have any further questions then feel free to email us at, I will be checking the email ever so often, if you are in a band you should have my number and I should have yours. Thanks for all the support couldn't do this without you.

May 15: It's Tuesday, are you ready?

Are you ready for Treasure Fest II? Both days look like they are going to have some awesome shows on them. People seem really excited about Snug Harbor on both days and all of the other venues are buzzing too. Make sure you check out the schedule now, figure out a game plan so you can hit it hard on game day (may 18th).

Do you need a place to stay during Treasure Fest II? There are locals opening up their homes to bands and patrons so just ask around. If that doesn't work then hit up Econo Lodge on Briar Creek. Their info is posted on the LODGING tab of this site. The rates are super cheap and they are a stone's throw away from all the action. Be safe while staying in motels. Don't leave valuables in your vehicle and be smart.

I don't want to jinx it (knock on wood) but weather looks like it will be nice on the 18th and the 19th. Make sure you come to check in (in front of Snug Harbor) and get your wristband. A lot of people have bought tickets, so if you want to be cool like them, and enter in to win an awesome raffle then buy your ticket now. Check in is from about noon to 5pm on both days. Depending on interest the times could be shorter or longer. Be there at 1pm at the latest if possible. Get it done early then go eat at the many awesome restaurants Plaza-Midwood has to offer. Life doesn't get any better than that. Good music and good food. Check out the EATS tab for all the good food.

Let's have fun and be respectful to the neighborhood. Charlotte, Plaza-Midwood, and Treasure Fest looks forward to having you. Friday is gonna be amazing.

May 13: It's Coming!!!

Treasure Fest is coming up on us quick. Hope you have a ticket. If you don't then go to the TICKET page and check out the raffle and the shirt. If you buy an advanced ticket then you can win soooo much free stuff. Weather should be good, buy some walking shoes and commence to partying.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay there is the Econo Lodge on Briar Creek near Bojangles Coliseum. Check out the LODGING tab for information. Originally we were told the room was $25. It was a little misleading. A single room is in fact that much but you have to add taxes. Taxes suck but they are a reality of life. Split between a lot of friends this should still be a sweet deal. The double room is also available, but is more money, obviously. TREASURE FEST is not responsible for anything that happens at these locations. The motel isn't in the best area, don't leave valuables in your car, should be fine though, its still Charlotte.

You should be stoked for next weekend. Take off work, save your lunch money and have lots of fun!!!

May 8: Treasure Fest II is 9 Days Away!!!

Treasure Fest II is coming up on us quick. If you don't have your tickets yet you have until 11:59pm on May 17th to do so. If you don't then you won't be entered into the raffle to win lots of prizes and FREE tickets to FEST 11 in Gainesville, FL. There are lots of reasons to go to Treasure Fest, if not just to support a local DIY festival. There are over 60 bands playing at like 8 venues. You have so many awesome shows to choose from. Don't complain about how nothing is happening in North Carolina or Charlotte for that matter. Go over to the tickets tab and buy a ticket (or two).
