Hopscotch Music Festival, called “America’s (Secretly) Best Festival” and “the premiere experimental and underground festival in America”, returns to downtown Raleigh for the sixth year this September, 10-12. Featuring more than 140 bands over 3 days, Hopscotch is known for adventurous lineups, memorable performances, and a fan-friendly atmosphere. From a large outdoor main stage in Raleigh City Plaza to intimate club shows, the festival offers 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, Hopscotch has been a signature event for the creative community of Raleigh, North Carolina. Approximately 35% 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, the SiteWork art exhibition, an annual photography exhibit, more than 30 day parties, and the accompanying Hopscotch Design Festival, Hopscotch is a city-wide celebration for locals and fans visiting from faraway locales.
