20th Street Block Party 2023 Lineup Announced by Noise Pop

Noise Pop Industries are excited to announce the full music lineup for this year’s 20th Street Block Party, which returns on Saturday, October 15 to a new location in the historic Mission District of San Francisco. Although the all-ages, day-long event will remain admission-free, a limited number of Headliner Experience VIP passes for the Block Party are on sale now at 20thstreetblockparty.com.

Part-street food festival, part-music festival, and part-local shopping bazaar, the community-wide event will transform Valencia street in San Francisco’s historic Mission District into a daylong admission-free all-ages celebration of the diverse neighborhood that has been home to the Noise Pop offices for over a decade.

This year’s community event offers a diverse array of musical tastes and local performers who hail from the greater Bay Area including Oakland-based punk rock trio Destroy Boys, who will headline the 2022 festival. The rest of the 2022 lineup includes surf-pop rockers Hot Flash Heat Wave; six-piece electro-indie outfit The Seshen; singer/songwriter MARINERO; Oakland-based rapper Ricky Lake; and many more.

The full music lineup is listed below and available online at 20thstreetblockparty.com:

Destroy Boys • Hot Flash Heat Wave • The Seshen • MARINERO • Ricky Lake • Sour Widows • Juicebumps • The Umbrellas

For the first time in its history, 20th Street Block Party will relocate to a new and larger home, off Valencia Street between 18th and 20th Streets, which is where the new Noise Pop office is also located. With a continued focus on all things local since the event’s inception in 2013, the fall Block Party will continue to highlight the small businesses, food, music, art, and rich culture that not only inspires the Mission District community but residents across the Bay Area and far beyond.

This year’s Block Party original poster artwork is once again designed by local artist Jason Jägel, who also created the Block Party’s artwork last fall.
