Hopscotch Festival has an insane lineup

Raleigh, NC’s Hopscotch Music Festival just announced its lineup, and this is definitely worth a road trip.  The festival takes place September 8-10, and the lineup is great mix of long-running experimental acts, rising indie bands, and old school indie rock royalty.  It’s a walking festival with a bunch of participating venues, but there are two “headlining” shows that take place outdoors on Friday and Saturday.  Friday’s big show is headlined by Guided By Voices (who are apparently done with the reunion thing after this fall), with Drive-By Truckers and The Dodos opening.  Saturday features The Flaming Lips, along with Superchunk and The Light Pines.  Tickets to both those shows can be bought separately, too.

Highlights for me are Rhys Chatham, Earth, JEFF the Brotherhood, Mouthus, Future Islands, Prurient, Swans, and Oneohtrix Point Never, but that’s really just the tip of the iceberg.  The lineup is loaded with great acts, many of which don’t tour all that heavily.

Don’t sleep on this one – VIP tickets sold out in a few hours, so I doubt regular passes last until September.
