SAN FRANCISCO, CA (December 6, 2016) – Noise Pop Festival, the Bay Area’s premiere independent music and arts festival, is announcing today Phase 2 of the music announcement with several additions to the lineup of artists set to perform at the 25th annual event February 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 Phase 2 artists just released go on sale this Friday, December 9 at 10 a.m. PT.
The festival will return this year to celebrate a quarter-century of Noise Pop over eleven days at venues throughout the Bay Area. Fans can expect amazing music performances at some of their favorite clubs, captivating film presentations, art shows, a host of special events taking place at Noise Pop HQ at the Swedish American Hall, and additional retrospective events still to be announced.
Coming out of retirement to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Noise Pop is one of the San Francisco music community’s most celebrated rock bands of the last two decades, Creeper Lagoon. The core lineup—consisting of Ian Sefchick, Sharky Laguana, David Kostiner and Dan Carr—hasn’t been on stage together since 2001. Their critically adored debut album, I Become Small and Go, was released in 1998 on Nickelbag Records, the now defunct label run by producer team, the Dust Brothers. Their second album, Take Back the Universe and Give Me Yesterday, was released in 2001 and featured the song “Wrecking Ball.” On Sunday, February 26, Creeper Lagoon will headline the Bottom of the Hill, a venue they played countless times over the years, including a legendary New Year’s show as 1999 rolled into 2000. Individual tickets to this show are $15, and go on sale this Friday.
California rock group Grandaddy, who will release their next album in early 2017 after a ten-year break, will play this year’s festival, along with Welsh alternative rock outfit The Joy Formidable and Rogue Wave, who will be playing a special show at Popscene featuring a set of 80s covers to coincide with the release of their album, Cover Me. A vinyl-only version came out last week on Record Store Day (http://www.recordstoreday.com
/SpecialRelease/8704). Among the additional newly announced performers are Radical Face, fronted by Jacksonville singer-songwriter Ben Cooper; Electric Guest; SF-born singer and multi-instrumentalist Hanni El Khatib; Athens rock outfit Mothers; the Oakland-based Aussie Hazel English, whom you may remember from this year’s 20th Street Block Party; and Bay Area rock group The Mother Hips. These artists join previously released performers that include Vince Staples, Ty Segall, Deafheaven, MSTRKRFT, BadBadNotGood (BBNG), Dawes, The Radio Dept., Los Campesinos!, Cloud Nothings, and many more.
The full music lineup will continue to be released in installments between now and February. The list of artists currently announced is included below (with new artists signified by *) and available online at www.noisepop.com/2017/. This lineup is subject to change.
