SAN FRANCISCO"S NOISE POP FESTIVAL TEAMS UP WITH LYFT AND DOSTUFF APP

Noise Pop Festival, the Bay Area’s premier indie music and arts festival, is teaming up with event discovery app DoStuff and rideshare company Lyft to bring music fans an exciting and convenient new way to get the most out of your festival experience. Noise Pop and DoStuff have created a mobile app, available for iPhone and Android, that will work in concert with Lyft to connect the music of this citywide, multi-venue festival and close the gap between venues, turning the city into a festival.
The 24-year-old festival now gives music fans the convenience of venue-hopping like walking between stages at an outdoor music festival, while maintaining the intimate and outstanding sound and stage shows offered by the best venues in the city. You can catch as many as five bands a night and see them play on five different stages.

Noise Pop attendees who download the DoStuff app, where the Festival’s page is located, will receive tailor-made and geo-targeted notifications—including updated set times the moment they walk into the venue and alerts to unannounced secret shows—in addition to general Festival information like maps, artist bios and venue details. And once you’ve built your custom schedule and have chosen the bands you want to see through the app, you will receive notifications on the best times to catch a Lyft to the next stage, making sure you are there to catch each set. Festival badge holders will also receive Lyft credit to get them started along with discount codes, adding affordability to the process.
                                 
For locals, the new app adds efficiency to their festival nights, allowing them to fit in their favorite artists at multiple venues in an evening. For those new to the Bay Area, it’s also a great way to tour the city via some of the best music venues in the country featuring a lineup of amazing performers. This year’s artists are among some of the most diverse in the festival’s history, featuring everything from indie and jazz to pop and hip-hop and including performances from Metric, American Football, Carly Rae Jepsen, The Mountain Goats, Vince Staples, Neon Indian, DIIV, Bill Callahan, Kamasi Washington, and many more.

The new Noise Pop app, by-way-of DoStuff, is now available for download in the iPhone and Android app stores. More information can be found at http://noisepop.com/2016/lyft/.

Noise Pop badges are on sale, as are individual show tickets to all available currently announced performances, and can be purchased at http://noisepop.com/2016/buy-badges/.

If you are interested in catching a particular performance but the show is sold out, you can still purchase one of the festival badges, which grant access to all shows, space permitting. The General Music badge does not grant access to the film screenings and events, and the Film Series badge does not grant you access to music shows. Music + Film Series badges, on the other hand, grant you access to both music and film events. While Super Fan Badges guarantee access to all music shows and film screenings with red carpet treatment for the duration of the festival.
