Noise For NOW Festival Tickets
Noise for NOW Festival tickets
Every Noise for NOW festival represents a connection between touring musicians or local promoters and feminist organizations that need funding and grassroots support. Concertgoers with Noise for NOW Festival tickets might or might not actually see the organization that's being supported in attendance, but they can rest assured that once the performing artists have recovered their costs for travel and staffing, some or all of the proceeds are going to support organizations that empower women and protect access to women's health and abortion rights.
Noise for NOW history
The first Noise for NOW Festival tour was created by a partnership between members of the Santa Fe Chapter of NOW - that is, the National Organization for Women - the band Grizzly Bear, Fort William Management and William Morris Endeavor. The Santa Fe Chapter of NOW also wanted to connect with incoming generations of activists through cultural events; the response to the event was described as "overwhelming."
Since that first benefit concert, acts like Beach House, Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, Heather Trost, Lower Dens, Tune Yards and TV on the Radio have participated in Noise for NOW concerts, benefitting organizations like Santa Fe NOW and the Pro-Choice Safety Network Fund.
Noise for NOW concerts are organized so that while the benefitting organization has the option of being there to distribute literature or sell their own merchandise, they won't sell merchandise that uses the musician's name or image, or conflicts with any merchandise that the musicians themselves choose to sell.
