Artists are required to exhibit at all three days of Flatstock.

American Poster Institute and Noise Pop present:
FLATSTOCK 91
March 2 & 3, 2024 12-6 (times subject to change)
Social Hall SF - https://www.socialhallsf.com
1270 Sutter St. San Francisco, CA 94107

28 10x10' spaces are available. Registration does NOT guarantee you a place. Due to the limited space available, we will be curating the lineup.

We will notify accepted artists on Nov. 7, 2023 and remaining artist will be placed on a wait list. 

Booth cost is TBD pending sponsorship contributions but will be in the range of $500 - $750. Invoices will be sent once we lock-in sponsors. Each booth will include 10'x10' pipe frame, table and chairs.

Additionally, we will ask each artist to forward two posters to be included in a month-long exhibition at the Noise Pop offices during the month of February for a gallery show and to promote Flatstock. Unsold posters will be returned to the artist. If accepted you will get instructions on where to send prints.

Lastly, we are working with the festival to create individual show posters for the festival bands. It will, of course, require band approval but we're hoping to get the Noise Pop Poster series going again!

About the Noise Pop Festival:
From its humble beginnings—one night, 5 bands at the Kennel Club (now the Independent)—to the present: one week, 160+ bands, 80+ events, 25+ venues—the Noise Pop Music & Arts Festival has become a San Francisco staple.

Featuring non-stop music from electronic to jazz to good ol’ rock n’ roll, the festival offers an opportunity for everyone and anyone to enjoy the celebration. Complemented by art shows, film scores, talks, happy hours, after hours and more, Noise Pop truly champions independent culture.

First wave announcement for Noise Pop will be Nov 7, 2023!

Thanks,

Tuffy and the API
