Noise Pop Festival, an annual indie music, arts and film festival, will take place in San Francisco for its 20th year this winter. According to Pitchfork Magazine, “Since its inception in 1993, San Francisco’s Noise Pop Festival has grown into one of the most respected indie rock extravaganzas in the country.” With its permanent home in the hippie capital of the USA, it’s no surprise that the event is a smash success. Noise Pop began in the ’90s as a yearly independent music gathering, and brought out many local bands and musicians. It eventually expanded into the arts, pop culture and independent films, and now showcases the best of all things alternative.

Tickets can be purchased separately for each individual event, or a general pass can be purchased for $150 and used for the duration of the festival.
