2006 isn't almost over, is it? Considering it is almost November I guess so. That being said, it's time to start thinking of next year's music festivals. San Francisco's Noise Pop has announced that they are going to be celebrating their 15th anniversary in 2007 from February 27 through March 5, ending just in time for SXSW.
During that week Noise Pop will feature a music festival, art exhibition, film festival and the first annual expo. The expo will include special performances, panel discussions, trade booths and a media center. With the expo as a part of 2007's Noise Pop, it appears that the festival is growing up to join in the SXSW/CMJ ranks.
The bands and films for 2007 have yet to be announced, so keep checking their official site for more information.
