There will be music in the air from Sept. 9th – 11th, during Independent Weekly’s homegrown event, Hopscotch Music Festival.  With more than 120 bands performing at 10 venues over three nights, this music festival is unrivaled as the largest as its kind in the area.

As you venture around downtown Raleigh, you’ll find that you can listen to just about every genre imaginable, from rock, metal, punk and dance to alternative country, classical, folk and drone.  You’ll find bands that are local, national and international.  Whether your musical tastes are mainstream or a little off the beaten path, Hopscotch has got a band that will suit you.

While the bands will keep everyone entertained at night, the days will be filled with parties thrown by local labels, a free cultural series at Raleigh City Museum and plenty of other fun activities.  You can purchase tickets for all of the shows, for just the club shows, or for one-day passes to the Friday or Saturday City Plaza shows.  Purchase tickets here.
