San Francisco, California -- For more than two decades, Noise Pop has been known for exposing emerging talent while creating a well-rounded event that features art, film, and appearances from musical legends in addition to indie music.
For 2014, the Bay Area music festival promises no different. From February 25 through March 2, 90+ artists will play across 22 of San Francisco's best venues. At the center of it all is The NWBLK, a design nexus and gallery space Noise Pop' will transform into its headquarters. Here you can handle all your Noise pop needs and explore what the festival has hailed, "a multimedia wonderland."
But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Before you can even plan your schedule or ponder the Noise Pop headquarters, you have to get to know the lineup. This is where our playlist comes in.
Sure there are notable names on the lineup (Real Estate, Doctor Dog, Mark Kozelek, Bob Mould, Matthew Dear, to name a few), but Noise Pop is all about the emerging artists so don't be surprised if a lot of the lineup is unfamiliar. We included every artist in our playlist (that are on Spotify, that is) from the known to the hidden gems, so you can enter your Noise Pop weekend with confidence.
