The three-day New Noise Music Conference and Festival brought thousands out in Santa Barbara for an event that featured cutting edge musicians and industry leaders.

One of the highlights was the day long street party in the Funk Zone.

It was part of a lineup that featured bands at several nightclubs and music venues, mainly in downtown, that came in from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and Ventura.

Seminars were also held on key issues facing the music industry, including marketing, brand management, making music for films, and making a career out of music.

The New Noise Festival began in 2009.
