in Gear by

Noise Pop Festival has added over 50 new acts to their musical lineup set to take place Feb. 17–27, 2017. General Music and Super Fan badges, as well as individual show tickets, are on sale now and available at www.noisepop.com/2017. Individual tickets to the shows for the Bay Area artists are set to go on sale this Friday, January 13 at 10 a.m. PT.

The festival will celebrate a quarter-century of Noise Pop with an array of amazing performances not only from national music acts but also from an impressive variety of established and up-and-coming Bay Area artists. In addition to the music, fans can also experience film and art shows, along with special events at Noise Pop HQ at the Swedish American Hall, over eleven days at venues throughout the city.

Over fifty performers from the Bay will participate in this year’s event, including acts like Rogue Wave, who will be playing a special show at Popscene featuring a set of 80s covers coinciding with the release of Cover Me, and Oakland-based Australian singer-songwriter Hazel English. Newly announced artists include the Oakland-based garage punk trio Shannon and the Clams; dream-pop group The Bilinda Butchers; aspiring DJ and producer Qrion, who originally hails from Japan prior to relocating to the Bay Area; San Francisco rockers Hot Flash Heat Wave; and more. Also just announced are performances by Japanese Breakfast, the Oregon-based indie rock solo project of Michelle Zauner; Canadian electronic musician Teen Daze; and LA-based musician Kevin Abstract. These artists join previously released festival performers that include Vince Staples, Ty Segall, Deafheaven, MSTRKRFT, BadBadNotGood (BBNG), Dawes, The Radio Dept., Los Campesinos!, and Cloud Nothings.

The full music lineup will continue to be released in installments in the weeks preceding the festival. The list of artists currently announced is included below (with new artists signified by * and Bay Area artists underlined) and available online at www.noisepop.com/2017/.
