Raleigh, N.C. — Start planning your Hopscotch Music Festival experience now! The downtown Raleigh-based event has released its band schedule for Sept. 10-12.
The City Plaza stage headliners were announced last month. Canadian post-rock band Godspeed You! Black Emperor will headline on Thursday Sept. 10, with Atlanta's Deerhunter as the opener. The following night, indie rock band TV on the Radio will headline with Tycho. Durham's own Carlitta Durand will be the opening act.
On Saturday, Sept. 12, country singer-songwriter and actor Dwight Yoakam will headline. Los Angeles band X, and local favorites American Aquarium and The Vibekillers will open.
Tickets are on sale now through eTix.com.
A few VIP wristbands are still available. Those are $225 each and get you access to all three days of the festival. The VIP perk is really being allowed to skip lines at club shows!
Three-day passes are also available for $155 each, while single-day passes are $85.
You can also get just City Plaza tickets. Those prices range from $35-$50 depending on the headliner.
