Noise Festival launches

Noise Festival launches

Noise Festival, the UK’s first cross media festival, launched in style last week with an event at Urbis. Young creative types from across the country have been submitting their work to Noise since February, and now this month will see the thousands of entries showcased and up for public voting.

Noise is an arts festival with a difference. Having no physical location, the central hub of activity is the Noise website at www.noisefestival.com. The website serves as a platform to showcase the works, which cover fashion, film, music, design, architecture, written word, and are all created by up and coming creative geniuses.

To mark the festival going live online, Noise held a launch party last week at Urbis, with an exhibition showcasing some of the festival’s highlights.

Introducing the event was festival organiser Denise Proctor, with speeches from design curator Wayne Hemingway and a live video link speech from MTV’s Senior Vice President of Creative and Marketing International, Cristian Jofre. The event was also attended by Peter Saville, who took the opportunity to meet the artists whose work he most admired.

The event closed with live performances from a fantastic up and coming Manchester band International One (www.internationalone.co.uk) who have recently been in the studio recording with Phil Vinall – producer of Radiohead, Pulp and Snow Patrol, and Raxstar, the winner of BBC Radio 1’s best unsigned act award in 2005.

Noise festival is now live online at www.noisefestival.com, for the public to vote for their favourite submissions.

“Any notion of competitiveness needs to be put to one side, we need to create this platform that draws attention to new creative talent. Ultimately if only four of 4,000 submissions get the opportunity to move on and find the next stage in life through Noise then the whole project is a success” said Peter Saville, graphic design curator for Noise.

The opening at the Urbis was the first in a series of Noise events taking place across the country throughout October.
