Last week, Hopscotch announced its first Design Festival. That will be held Wednesday, Sept. 3 and Thursday, Sept. 4, at various downtown venues. There will be more than 25 sessions from presenters who work in graphic design, urban planning, architecture, music, food, film and technology. The two days will be filled with interactive sessions, workshops and parties. The event is designed to blend seamlessly into the Hopscotch Music Festival.
The Hopscotch Design Festival lineup will be announced in mid-April, but expect some announcements before then on participating speakers.
There will be two-day wristbands available for the Design Festival and a discounted "add-on" wristbands for fans who purchase a VIP or three-day Hopscotch Music wristband. Look for more ticket info soon.
