What is Noise Pop Music & Arts Festival?

We're a festival that bridges SF and Oakland with shows ranging from Fox Theater to Bottom of the Hill. See music the way it was meant to be heard in packed rooms and surrounded by dancing fans. Hop from venue to venue to catch every band on the lineup that you just can't miss. Don't fret, you can either buy a ticket to one specific show or a badge to go to literally any and all shows on our lineup.
