Noise music can be accessible and inclusive, as Denver Noise Fest proved

Denver Noise Fest is now one of the biggest of its kind in the country. And it isn't just harsh noise. The lineup did not just feature circuit-bending academics. The Festival was a celebration of a love for weird noises, by a wide-ranging group of generous artists.
