Paying homage to the greats and focusing on the best of the up-and-coming artists, Noise Pop cultivates revitalizing experiences and supports the broad scope of Bay Area culture.
From its humble beginnings—one night, 5 bands at The Kennel Club (now The Independent)—to the present: one week, 160+ bands, 80+ events, 25+ venues—the Noise Pop Music & Arts Festival has become a San Francisco staple.
Featuring non-stop music from electronic to jazz to good ol’ rock n’ roll, the festival offers an opportunity for everyone and anyone to enjoy the celebration. Complemented by art shows, film scores, talks, happy hours, after hours and more, Noise Pop truly champions independent culture.
For one day in San Francisco’s true summer, we showcase the neighborhood in which we live and love: bringing the best of our micro-hood and all of her hidden flavors. With a focus on local, we highlight the small businesses, food, music, and art that inspires 20th Street and beyond.
