Best Hopscotch 2014 performances
Posted September 8, 2014
More than 100 bands played the 2014 Hopscotch Music Festival. The Out and About team picked the six best of the weekend.
De La Soul - The first Thursday night City Plaza show in Hopscotch Music Fest history featured these hip-hop legends. Their energy and beats were a great way to start off the weekend. "A nice mix of newer hits and old favorites, with tons of crowd participation," photographer Jay Yovanovich said.
SubRosa - "When you think of a metal band, one doesn’t necessarily think of violins, but they were well incorporated. I think they were my favorite," photographer Stan Chambers said.
St. Vincent - "Her soulful voice just seems to put you right into the middle of her thoughts. I liked how she immersed herself into her performance, even going into the crowd for a moment. Definitely another Hopscotch favorite," photographer Stan Chambers said.
Valient Thorr - "I've seen VT play before so I knew I was in for a good show, but it was nice to see them take command of a bigger audience this time. If you love rock 'n' roll then you had a great time watching these guys sweat to death doing what they love," photographer Greg Hutchinson said.
TOW3RS - "This was easily my favorite set of the entire festival. Great vibe, great energy, and dance performances squeezed in on a packed stage," photographer Jay Yovanovich said.
Ava Luna - "I couldn't believe how well this group harmonized. It's one of those bands, you don't want to ever stop playing. The crowd was mesmerized. I left thinking, 'They won Hopscotch,'" photographer Greg Hutchinson.
