Noise Pop Festival is an annual week-long music and arts festival that takes place throughout the San Francisco Bay Area produced by Noise Pop. Since 1993, Noise Pop Festival has provided exposure to some emerging artists, many of which have gone on to widespread acclaim, including The White Stripes, Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, The Flaming Lips, The Shins, Fleet Foxes, Bright Eyes and Yoko Ono.

Noise Pop Festival began in 1993 as a "5 bands for 5 dollars show"at the Kennel Club (now the Independent). Tickets were $5 and although it was only one day, it was called the S.F. Noise Pop Festival.[1] It has expanded to a nine-day festival across nearly every major and independent venue in San Francisco.
