Noise Pop 2012 – its 20th anniversary edition – is shaping up to be something fierce. Atlas Sound is the final headliner to be announced, joining The Flaming Lips (who will playThe Soft Bulletin in its entirety), Built to Spill and Cursive atop the bill.
To that end, Noise Pop has dropped their 2012 schedule, and we’re already putting targets on the shows we’d like to see. Because “all of them” is not particularly helpful advice (though it’s an option we support, if you have a handful of clones at the ready), we’ve picked the one concert per day that we think will be exceptional (which was absolutely not easy to narrow down, by the way).
Shows are 21+ unless otherwise noted, and festival badges get you into every event except The Flaming Lips and Die Antwoord.
