Now in its sixth year, the Hopscotch Music Festival has become an annual tradition in downtown Raleigh, NC. Comprising three days of music spread this year between eleven local venues, along with large outdoor concerts held on a large temporary stage raised on the street of the City Plaza, the festival is unique in that it is a large event that manages to maintain the feel of the city that hosts it.
Hopscotch is young. Hopscotch is innovative. Hopscotch is hectic. Most of all though, the annual Hopscotch music festival held in Raleigh, North Carolina – now in its sixth year – is one of the most vibrant, eclectic and important music festivals going. In three days you’re just as likely to see your favorite headlining acts like TV On The Radio or Dwight Yoakam (yes, really) as you are to be crammed into a day party witnessing an unhinged performance by some unknown (to you) up-and-comer.
