Noise Pop Festival is an annual celebration of independent culture that transforms the Bay Area into festival grounds with multiple events taking place each night. As with last year, access to film screenings and film events will also be included with the general Noise Pop badge, allowing badge-holders to get more out of their festival experience.

All badges grant access to all general admission (non-seated) music concerts, badge-only happy hours, Noise Pop HQ and special events (soon 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. Additionally, Noise Pop Festival is proud to announce that artist Kristin Farr will create the official artwork for this year’s festival.

Last year’s Noise Pop saw the festival’s highest attendance to date, hosting over 30,000 attendees during the week-long celebration of music, film, art and culture. The festival sold more tickets than any other year to date and sold out of all badges in advance. The 2018 festival played host to 180+ music artists across more than 25 Bay Area venues, with events including concerts, film screenings, art shows and more.
