Noise Pop Festival, San Francisco Bay Area’s premier independent music and arts festival, is proud to reveal an expanded phase 2 music lineup for its 30th anniversary as the multi-venue festival returns February 20-26, 2023. Tickets to each of these newly announced concerts are on sale now via www.noisepopfest.com in addition to full festival badges.
Serving as a cultural arbiter and community advocate within the local arts scene for three decades while promoting thousands of concerts and creating unique festival properties across Northern California, Noise Pop looks forward to celebrating the 30th anniversary of the team’s flagship festival brand – Noise Pop Festival – this coming February. The 2023 lineup will ultimately offer fans a meticulously curated selection of iconic indie-rock darlings, boundary-defying up-and-coming acts, rare reunion shows, anniversary album plays, and Bay Area debuts from international performers, along with more than 100 local performers found here in the Bay Area.
Newly announced performers include Junglepussy as the acclaimed female MC headlines The New Parish on February 26; Canadian DJ/producers Jacques Greene as well as Yu Su who are joining the bill for the Tourist showcase at Public Works on February 24; Sara Landry being tapped for the HE.SHE.THEY lineup at Public Works on February 25; Tommy Guerrero as the accomplished skateboarder-turned-music producer returns for a second consecutive year to perform at the hometown festival; and Spellling who will help close out the week-long concert series on Sunday night at Great American Music Hall.
Plus, the long-running Bay Area comedy showcase “The #HellaFunny Comedy Night” makes its Noise Pop Festival debut featuring Stroy Moyd, Chris Riggins, Allison Hooker, Emily Van Dyke, and some special to-be-announced guests at The New Parish on February 25, although other non-music and alternative programming including film screenings, art shows, happy hours, and more will be revealed in the coming days.
Each of these new phase 2 acts will join previously announced festival performers including Boy Harsher, Duster, Y La Tengo, STRFKR, Bob Mould, Tourist, and San Jose’s own Covet, among many others. Additional festival events range from a four-night residency at SFJAZZ Center’s Joe Henderson Lab to the highly anticipated return of the international event series HE.SHE.THEY. to the very first North American show for the Singaporean rock outfit Sobs, and so much more.
Plus, Noise Pop has organized a very special opening night celebration on February 20 at Great American Music Hall featuring reunion performances from several 90s throwback acts and cult favorites like Chisel, Everyone Asked About You, and 20 Minute Loop; while punk rockers FIDLAR performs an intimate kick-off show at Bottom of the Hill; and dream-pop band No Vacation returns to SF for an unofficial homecoming performance at The Chapel.
