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.
Music history in the making—Noise Pop teamed up with Ne Timeas Restaurant Group and The Bon Vivants to revamp the historic Swedish American Hall. A venue like no other, the Freja Hall creates an intimate setting to be immersed in the performance.
Located in the subterranean level of the Swedish American Hall, which was built in 1907 and officially designated a San Francisco Historic Landmark in 2015, Café du Nord has been serving San Francisco (almost) continuously since 1907. Noise Pop is working to restore that heritage and light up the room with cheering patrons once again. Du Nord will complement the musical programming already happening upstairs at the Swedish American Hall, where Noise Pop has been consistently booking shows since 2015.
