Denver Noise Fest just announced the line-up for its 2014 festival, running Friday, April 25 and Saturday, April 26. The annual festival is one of the largest and most eclectic of its type in the country. Both nights will feature an eclectic array of noise artists from across the country. And the "Harsh Toast" event held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday will comprise the more ambient side of the festival's offerings.

Friday night's headliner is experimental electronic act Not Breathing, the project of David Wright, whose collaborators have included Cluster, Crash Worship and Steve Roach. The headliner for Saturday is Mark Hosler, who some may know better for his work in art-prankster sound artists Negativland. Tickets are $20 for a two day pass and $15 for a single day.
