The 804noise Fest is a two day experimental, noise & multi-media festival held each year in Richmond, Virginia showcasing experimental & noise artists mainly from Virginia along side a handful of special out of town guests. All artists perform for the sake of exposure and community growth and proceeds go back into the 804noise community to help fund future events and the 804noise community record label.
