Every year the city of Raleigh, North Carolina hosts a festival, unlike many others. Hopscotch Music Festival is different from your typical South East music festivals. It’s one of the few where you can see a doom band play in a dimly lite venue then run to see a flawlessly choreographed R&B set in a packed out amphitheater. Hopscotch humbly has it all. From midday drinking parties to late night noise band sets, Hopscotch never disappoints. With some of the best lineups on a regular yearly basis, it puts in a good word for NC, something that we need more of. Fueled by Jimmy John’s sandwiches and six dollars Bud Lights, the following photos are from notable sets I was able to see.
