Noise Pop also recently launched a contest in partnership with DoTheBay offering two lucky Bay Area musicians the opportunity to perform at the 2019 festival. Local music acts can submit their music for consideration at dothebay.com/p/play-noise-pop-festival-2019-contest. Public voting is open now, and fans can pick their favorites until 11:59PM on January 14th. The Noise Pop team will then choose two from the top ten to perform at this year’s fest and will announce the winners on January 23rd.
Noise Pop Festival takes some of the best venues across the SF Bay Area and collectively turns them into an attendee’s personal festival grounds with show locations ranging from Fox Theater to Bottom of the Hill. The week features countless music concerts, film screenings, art shows and happy hours throughout San Francisco, Oakland and across the East Bay, offering festival-goers the opportunity to experience some of today’s top and emerging artists while also exploring some of the Bay Area’s most historic and beloved venues. There are two options for attending the festival: buy a badge and get into every official Noise Pop Festival show and event OR pick and choose specific events by purchasing separate tickets to individual shows and events.
Festival badges are available for purchase today for $189. Those interested in attending are encouraged to act fast as badge prices will continue to go up as the festival dates approach. All badges grant access to all GA (non-seated) music concerts, badge-only happy hours, NPHQ and special events, which are 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. Additionally, badge-holders will have access to all film screenings and film-related events throughout the weeklong festival and will have the option of a specialized waitlist-service for sold-out music shows in case they were unable to purchase tickets in time.
A limited number of “Super Fan” badges are also available for purchase for $399, a price that will remain the same until they are sold out. An extremely limited amount of “Super Fam (+1)” badges, which for the first time will allow any Super Fam badge holder the freedom to switch out their +1s, are also still available for $850. Both “Super” badge-holders will experience VIP treatment at the festival, which includes guaranteed entry to all festival events (regardless of arrival time), 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, interested patrons should contact Noise Pop directly at email@example.com.
