Let Loose at the Annual Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh

If you are looking to experience a music festival unlike any other, look no further than Hopscotch Music Festival. With 120 bands over three days in September, Hopscotch is known for adventurous lineups, memorable performances, and a fan-friendly atmosphere. From large outdoor main stages in Raleigh City Plaza and Red Hat Amphitheater to intimate club shows, the festival features music in almost every genre imaginable—rock, hip-hop, metal, folk, electronic, experimental, and more—and its schedule highlights this diversity each year.

From its inception in 2010, Hopscotch has been a signature event for the creative community of Raleigh, North Carolina. Approximately 20% of the festival’s performers hail from in-state—a figure few, if any, nationally recognized music festivals can claim. With official programming stretching across 12 walkable venues, an art exhibition, more than 30 day parties, and the Hopscotch Design Festival, Hopscotch is a city-wide celebration for locals and fans visiting from faraway locales.

Brightest Young Things describes Hopscotch as “a weird and wonderful festival largely because no one group of people defines it. It is not just for industry types. It is not just for teenagers with floral crowns. It is not just for the Glow People. And by being for no one in particular, it ends up being for everyone including married couples, college kids, cratediggers, in-towners and out-of-towners.”

Headliners for this year’s festival include Miguel, Nile Rodgers & Chic, The Flaming Lips, Grizzly Bear, MC50, Thundercat, The Revolution, Sleep, and Liz Phair. General admission, VIP, one-day and single show tickets for Hopscotch Music Festival are now available for purchase at www.hopscotchmusicfest.com.
