The Noise Pop Festival is San Francisco’s favorite indie music, art and film festival. Now in its 24th year, Noise Pop has brought early exposure to many emerging artists in the Bay Area and beyond, many of whom have gone on to widespread acclaim like the White Stripes, Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips, Death Cab for Cutie, The Shins, Bright Eyes, and more. In addition, the festival boasts a film series that explores the intersection of music and art; the Noise Pop Headquarters (NPHQ); art gallery shows; happy hours and much more.
