FH021: Hopscotch Music Festival 2016

This week for episode twenty-one we explore the uniquely named Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, NC from Sept. 8-11th.

Hopscotch Music Festival features local, national, and international bands in a variety of genres — rock, hip-hop, metal, dance, punk, alt-country, classical, noise, drone, folk and more. More than 130 acts play in multiple venues within a walkable footprint in downtown Raleigh, with artists performing on an outdoor main stage and in many local clubs.

It was founded by Greg Lowenhagen while he was an employee at the Independent Weekly,a locally owned alternative weekly newspaper and media company.
