Festival badges for the 2008 Noise Pop Festival are on sale now. Noise Pop Festival badges are offered exclusively from Noise Pop’s website, www.noisepop.com. Noise Pop Festival badges grant access to all general admission Noise Pop shows, film screenings, happy hours and other happenings during the festival. Festival badges are a great deal and perfect for dedicated indie music fans who intend to soak up everything that Noise Pop has to offer.
As a special gift for the holidays, Noise Pop is offering a limited number of 2008 festival badges that include a ticket to one of two already sold out Magnetic Fields shows happening in San Francisco as part of the Noise Pop Festival. Magnetic Fields are headlining two nights at the historic Herbst Theatre. As these are both seated shows, Noise Pop Festival badges will not be honored for entry. However, a limited number of festival badges will include one ticket to either the Thursday, February 28 or Friday, February 29 show as a free gift for those who purchase between now and December 31, 2007. This holiday offer is only good while supplies last. Noise Pop 2008 Festival badges are priced at $175.
Established in San Francisco in 1993, Noise Pop started as a one-night event featuring the best underground rock bands that the Bay Area could dish up. Flash forward to today and the Noise Pop Festival is another beast entirely. With live music as it’s focal point, Noise Pop has developed into full-scale cultural happening, adding gallery art shows, a music-themed film festival, educational panel discussions with musicians and music industry professionals, an indie designer trunk sale and more.
