Noise Pop Announces Complete Festival Lineup, Schedule

Exclusive! San Francisco's indie-rock extravaganza sets day-by-day band itinerary.

Officials for San Francisco’s Noise Pop Festival have announced the complete band lineup and concert schedule for the 15th annual event, set to take place Feb. 27 through Mar. 4, and Sebadoh, the Dandy Warhols, Clinic, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, the Donnas, the Ponys, Matt and Kim, Ghostland Observatory, and the Annuals are just some of the bands that’ll hightail it to the city by the bay.

This year’s event will include a film festival featuring never-before-seen music clips and documentaries from across the globe. In addition, the Noise Pop Expo, a two-day mini-conference featuring panel discussions beginning March 3, will be unveiled alongside returning programs like Indie Night School, a class exploring the many aspects of running a band independently, and the Art of Noise Pop, an event featuring past and present Noise Pop art on display and on sale.
