Hopscotch Music Festival returns to downtown Raleigh, N.C. for its 10th year on Sept. 5-7, 2019. Described as “America’s (secretly) best festival” and “the premiere experimental and underground festival in America,” Hopscotch features over 120 acts performing within Raleigh’s walkable downtown footprint.
For their 10 year anniversary Hopscotch decided to bring back a tradition from the early days of the festival — artist curated bills. This year they asked 10 North Carolina artists to curate bills across the weekend including Little Brother, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, Birds of Avalon, Nest Egg, Resonancy, No Love, Solar Halos, Museum Mouth, Crowmeat Bob, and Gudiya. Full artist curated bills will be announced throughout the summer.
Hopscotch is programmed by festival director Nathan Price. Jordan Benghiat, a talent buyer with Live Nation Carolinas, the company that is responsible for the city-owned Red Hat Amphitheater’s calendar, worked closely with Price on the festival.
Kaanchee Gandhi designed the Hopscotch poster for the 3rd straight year.
