Noise Pop is about discovering new music and, well, that can be time consuming (believe us, we know). So... consider this a leg up. The 2011 Noise Pop playlist is here, courtesy of 8tracks. Scroll halfway down our festival homepage and click away for an ever-expanding mix of artists performing at the 2011 Noise Pop Music Festival. Now you can bone up on all the artists before you head out to see them perform in 2 weeks.
