New Jersey’s Bamboozle announces more artists and lays down its day-to-day schedule while San Francisco’s Noise Pop adds to the artist lineup and announces its first-ever “Pop Up Shop.”
With previously announced acts like Lil’ Wayne, Motley Crue, The Gaslight Anthem, Bruno Mars and Taking Back Sunday, one might think the lineup for New Jersey’s annual Bamboozle festival couldn’t get any bigger. But Bamboozle is anything but predictable and this year’s blow-out has added more acts, including Alkaline Trio, Sam Adams, Thrice and Further Seems Forever featuring original members including Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional.
The festival also announced its fan-appreciation program, BoozleTwist, which gives festival goers opportunities to earn points by promoting Bamboozle via social networking environments like Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare and then exchange those points for rewards and unique VIP experiences with artists.
Bamboozle takes place at the New Meadowlands Stadium in E. Rutherford, N.J., April 29-May 1. For more information, click here for the festival’s website.

More artists and bands have been added to the 19th annual Noise Pop festival happening Feb. 22-27 in San Francisco.
Noise Pop isn’t your typical multi-day music festival. Unlike other major destination events consisting of multiple stages, midways and camping, Noise Pop is spread out over the city’s many fine nightclubs and taverns.
New additions to this year’s Noise Pop include Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard who will perform both DCFC and solo material when he commands the stage at the Great American Music Hall Feb. 27.
Other Noise Pop additions include No Age playing the Rickshaw Stop Feb. 26; How To Dress Well at Café du Nord Feb. 26; Peanut Butter Wolf and Dam Funk at Public Works Feb. 26; Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson at Great American Music Hall Feb. 25; Kid Koala at The Mighty Feb. 25 and Alexi Murdoch at Swedish American Hall Feb. 25.
This year’s Noise Pop also marks the debut of the festival’s first-ever Pop Up Shop. Through a partnership with Upper Playground Gallery and taking place at art space Fifty24SF, the Noise Pop Pop Up Shop functions as a multipurpose center featuring an art gallery, merch store and information center during the days of the festival and a theatre and performance space each evening.
