Article Contributed by Giant Noise | Published on Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Noise Pop Festival, the San Francisco Bay Area’s premiere indie music and arts festival, is excited to announce the first wave of artists scheduled to perform at the 27th annual festival, which is set to return to the Bay February 25 – March 3, 2019. Early Bird and Super Fan badges go on sale today, Wednesday, October 24 at 10 a.m. PT, although fans are encouraged to act fast as supply is limited and pricing will increase as the festival approaches and more is announced. Individual tickets to these artists just announced will go on sale at 10 a.m. PT this Friday, October 26. Noise Pop is also excited to announce the addition of a Super Fam badge – 2 premium Super Fan badges – which for the first time in festival history will allow any Super Fam badge holder the freedom to switch out their +1s. Previously each badge holder could be the only registered owner. Both badges and tickets can be purchased at

Noise Pop Festival is an annual celebration of independent culture in the Bay Area, which over the course of a week, from Monday, February 25 to Sunday, March 3rd, transforms the Bay Area into festival grounds with multiple events taking place across the city each night. As with last year, access to film screenings and film events will also be included with the general Noise Pop badge, which in previous years had required a separate badge or tickets. This additional perk allows badge-holders to get more out of their festival experience than ever before.

The first round of music artists confirmed to perform at Noise Pop 2019 includes Beirut, who have announced their fifth LP, Gallipoli, to be released February 1st; legendary guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Bob Mould, previously of Hüsker Dü and Sugar; beloved Scottish rock band Teenage Fanclub, who have been going strong since their debut album in 1990; and singer-songwriter Caroline Rose, who released her latest album, Loner, earlier this year. Also announced today is guitarist, singer and songwriter and member of The Strokes Albert Hammond Jr., who released his fourth solo album this past March; Jason Lytle, who is known as a singer-songwriter for the band Grandaddy in addition to his work as a solo artist; California electronic musician Baths; and many more.

Although the full music lineup will be announced in waves between now and February, the first phase of music acts confirmed to perform at the 2019 festival can be found below.

A limited amount of Early Bird badges are available for purchase today for $149. The festival’s tiered pricing structure will reward those who buy early, with badge prices going up as the festival approaches and more artists are announced. Once these initial Early Bird badges are sold out, Phase 1 general badges will increase to $179.

 All badges grant access to all general admission (non-seated) music 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 minutesafter club door times to guarantee entrance. All badge-holders will also have access to any film screenings and film-related events throughout the weeklong festival.

In addition, a limited number of Super Fan badges are on sale as of today for $399, a price that will remain the same until they are sold out. The newly announced Super Fam (+1) badge will also go on sale today for $850. Super badge-holders will experience the true red carpet treatment at the festival, where they receive guaranteed entry to all festival events, a special merch package, complimentary drink tickets to select events, and a personal Noise Pop concierge available for assistance throughout the weeklong festival. For any badge related questions, contact Noise Pop directly at

Tickets to individual festival performances from these artists just announced will go on sale this Friday, October 26 at 10 a.m. PT. Noise Pop Festival badge-holders will once again have the option of a specialized waitlist-service for sold-out shows in case they were unable to purchase tickets in time.

Additionally, Noise Pop Festival is proud to announce that artist Kristin Farr will create the official artwork for this year’s festival.

Last year’s Noise Pop saw the festival’s highest attendance to date, hosting over 30,000 attendees during the week-long celebration of music, film, art and culture. The festival sold more tickets than any other year to date and sold out of all badges in advance. The 2018 festival played host to 180+ music artists across more than 25 Bay Area venues, with events including concerts, film screenings, art shows and more.

Stay tuned as additional music acts, as well as the film, art and event lineup will be announced in the months ahead.
