Transcending continents and language barriers, Noisey gives music lovers the opportunity to discover great bands and connect on a powerful, state-of-the-art digital entertainment channel.
Noisey premieres on March 18 at the SXSW music festival, with a showcase event featuring Bun B, Ariel Pink, Yuck, JEFF The Brotherhood, Oberhofer and Dirty Beaches. The site will release new content on a daily basis and debuts with over 40 episodes.

"There is no other venue to get discovered like this," said Michael Tatelman, Dell's Vice President of North America Consumer Sales & Marketing. "Noisey.com is a discovery engine for young, cutting-edge music, and Dell's involvement from the very beginning makes Noisey even more unique. Dell's influence was to push the bounds of digital delivery and ensure Noisey.com was something no one has ever seen before."
