With 120 bands over 4 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.

“The premiere experimental and underground festival in America”—*Ad Hoc*

“Hopscotch is a weird and wonderful festival largely because no one group
of people define 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. In three
days of music, I met all of those types, plus married couples, college
kids, cratediggers, in-towners and out-of-towners. Come one, come
all.”—*Brightest Young Things*

“Hopscotch Music Festival is one of the best and most eclectic music
festivals in America.” —*Spin*

“In Raleigh Thursday through Saturday, it was all about an extraordinarily
cool roster of bands. With streets cordoned off throughout the downtown
area, thousands of people … wandered among ten participating music venues,
creating a Mardi Gras-like atmosphere.” —*Rolling Stone*

“Hopscotch: perfection, indeed” —*The News & Observer*

“Like most who know of its perfection, I’m almost afraid to gush too much
at the risk of jinxing or ruining the best three days of music experiences
one can be given…Perfectly curated with a blind ear to any buzz, specific
genre, or anything else…Hopscotch Festival can turn the biggest music snob
cynic into a carefree music lover once again. The word perfect is thrown
around lightly all over the place (I misuse it all the time), but that’s
the only word to describe this dream of a music festival…PERFECT.”—*We

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 http://www.hopscotchdesignfest.com/,
Hopscotch is a city-wide celebration for locals and fans visiting from
faraway locales.

All sales are final. All performances are 21+ unless noted on the event page.
