Hopscotch Music Festival 2015 announces lineup

Hopscotch Music Festival, called “America’s (Secretly) Best Festival” and “the premiere experimental and underground festival in America,” returns September 10-12, 2015. Today, the festival released its schedule, featuring 140 performances in 12 venues within a walkable footprint in downtown Raleigh, N.C.
The first of three outdoor main stage nights in Raleigh City Plaza begins on Thursday, Sept. 10 with groundbreaking post-rock collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor headlining and Atlanta’s Deerhunter opening. Friday, Sept. 11 will be headlined by the Grammy nominated TV on the Radio, with California’s Tycho in direct support. Durham’s Carlitta Durand will open. On Saturday, Sept. 12, country pioneer Dwight Yoakam will headline along with legendary Los Angeles band X who will open. Two local favorites, American Aquarium and The Vibekillers, round out the 4-band bill.
Along with the City Plaza main stage shows, attendees will bounce between 11 indoor venues: CAM Raleigh, Deep South the Bar, Fletcher Opera Theater, Kennedy Theater, Kings Barcade, Neptune’s, Pour House Music Hall, The Lincoln Theatre, Tir na nOg, Slim’s, and Vintage 21. From bars to concert halls to a church, these venues link together to create Hopscotch’s unique setting, one that utilizes Raleigh’s existing infrastructure. The indoor sets reflect Hopscotch’s reputation for programming an eclectic and unconventional weekend, one that showcases the likes of Virginia rapper Pusha T, Texas psych legend Roky Erickson, alt-country rocker Lydia Loveless, far out Brooklynites Zs, and electronic voyager Clark, all alongside a selection of compelling North Carolina bands.
