Noise Pop Music Festival announces phase one of their 2017 line up

Noise Pop Festival, the Bay Area’s premiere indie music and arts festival, is excited to announce phase one of the music lineup for the 25th annual festival. The 2017 Noise Pop Festival transforms SF and Oakland into a festival ground, taking place in multiple venues throughout the Bay Area over eleven days beginning Friday, February 17 and running through Monday, February 27. Early Bird and Super Fan badges go on sale today, Monday, November 14 at 9 a.m. PT. Individual tickets to these shows will begin to go on sale at 9 a.m. PT this Friday, November 18. Badges and tickets can be purchased at
The first round of music artists confirmed to perform Noise Pop Festival’s quarter-century celebration includes a return of California hip-hop artist Vince Staples, who thrilled fans at two sold-out performances last February; multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Ty Segall; San Francisco-based metal group Deafheaven; and Canadian electronic duo MSTRKRFT, who released their third album, OPERATOR, this past July after a seven-year absence. Also set to play the fest are electronic and hip-hop producers BadBadNotGood (BBNG), who will play in support of their fifth album released this summer, IV; Los Angeles-based folk-rock band Dawes, who released their fifth studio album, We’re All Going To Die, this September to acclaim from fans and critics alike; alt-rock pioneers Blonde Redhead; and more.

The 25th annual festival this February will include retrospective events celebrating a quarter-century of music, film and art in the Bay Area to accompany the outstanding performances from emerging artists and indie favorites that fans have come to expect from Noise Pop. The eleven-day festival will see Noise Pop HQ return to the Swedish American Hall, making it ground zero for intimate acoustic performances and a variety of special events and shows.

Additionally, Noise Pop Festival is proud to announce that Shepard Fairey—world-renowned contemporary street artist, graphic designer, activist, illustrator and founder of OBEY Clothing, who created art for the festival in 2000 and 2012 has contributed art for this year’s festival as well. 
Last year, Noise Pop saw some of the highest attendance in the festival’s history with over 90% of the acts playing to sold-out crowds. In total, over 21,000 people attended the 2016 festival, which included 150+ music artists across more than 17 Bay Area venues, with events including concerts, film screenings, art shows and more. Noise Pop Festival also saw an increase in overall traffic between venues last year. In previous years, the average number of shows per night badge-holders attended held steady at around 2.3 shows, while last year that number rose to 3.1 per night. This rise was largely attributed to a special collaboration with Lyft, as well as the Noise Pop app on DoStuff, which made venue-hopping easier and more-efficient—an effort the festival plans to utilize again and expand upon in support of the 25th event.
The lineup last year expanded to include more genres than ever before with multiple jazz, hip-hop, and pop acts joining the festival roster. Among the numerous sold-out performances were Kamasi Washington, Parquet Courts, Kneedelus, The Cave Singers, Vince Staples, Drive Like Jehu, Neon Indian, and DIIV. Additional musical highlights included American Football, Metric, Joywave, iLoveMakonnen, Heartwatch, La Sera, Ringo Deathstarr, Day Wave, and Her Space Holiday, which marked their first live show since 2011.

For the 2017 festival, a limited amount of Early Bird badges will be available at 9 a.m. PT Monday, November 14 for $145. Once these badges are gone, regular badges will be available for $175. These badges grant access to all general admission (non-seated) concerts, badge-only happy hours, NPHQ and some very 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.
In addition, a limited number of Super Fan badges will also go on sale November 14 for $375. Super Fan badge holders will experience red carpet treatment at the 25th annual Noise Pop Festival, where they receive guaranteed entry to all of their film, music and culture selections, a merchandise package, drink tickets to select events, rideshare coupons and a personal Noise Pop representative available for assistance during the Festival.
