The 26th annual Noise Pop Festival hosted throughout the San Francisco Bay Area has finalized its lineup for the weeklong affair from Feb 19 to Feb 25, 2018. This year, Noise Pop Festival will consist of 100+ performances showcasing musicians in all stages of their careers. Along with established artists such as Ty Dolla $ign, Real Estate, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and Tune-Yards, up-and-coming acts such as Roar, The Flytraps, Bat Fangs, and more will also be performing. Notable events include Built to Spill performing Keep It Like A Secret in its entirety as well as Toro Y Moi playing a DJ set at the official Noise Pop Festival kick-off at the California Academy of Sciences Nightlife on Thursday, Feb 8.
All performances during Noise Pop Festival are hosted throughout 25 local venues around San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley. The venues vary from sizeable concert halls to local dives with makeshift stages, offering a glimpse of the breadth and diversity of the music community in the Bay Area.
As the dates draw closer, more local acts will be unveiled. Film and art lineups will be released then as well.
Tickets to individual shows along with festival badges can be found on sale now at noisepopfest.com. Festival badges grant access to all general admission (non-seated) music concerts, badge-only happy hours, NPHQ, and other special events to be announced. Badges are non-transferrable with age restrictions for some events, and badge-holders must arrive within 60 minutes after club door times to guarantee entrance. New benefits for badge-holders this year include additional access to all of the film screenings and film-related events throughout the weeklong festival. Also new to Noise Pop Festival, badge-holders will now have the option of a specialized waitlist-service to help them enter shows.
