Since it began in 1993, the Noise Pop Festival has become a north star for the music industry, bringing emerging and promising talent to the forefront of their lineup. Numerous acclaimed artists have graced their stages, from The White Stripes and Yoko Ono, to Death Cab for Cutie and Bright Eyes, and many more. This six-day festival takes place across numerous event spaces in the SF area, catering to upwards of 20,000 fans. The festival has expanded in recent years to also include art gallery shows, as well as a music-centric film festival, a pop-up shop, an art exposition, an album-inspired dinner series called Covers, a weekend workshop exploring independent culture called the Noise Pop Culture Club, and much more. Six years ago they began the Treasure Island Music Festival (with Another Planet Entertainment) now one of the most important music festivals in the Bay Area. With all of these events, Noise Pop has solidified itself as the true amalgamator of Bay Area culture, and with Noisette, continues to do what it has always done best: celebrate the independent arts with the city at large.
