With the summer festival season already underway, it’s time to start looking forward to the fall. The Hopscotch Music Festival takes place in multiple venues across Raleigh, North Carolina, on September 5-7, and today the festival announced its initial lineup. Spiritualized, Big Boi, John Cale, Earl Sweatshirt, Sleep, Local Natives and Low are some of the headliners, along with the Breeders who will be playing Last Splash in its entirety.
Other special performances include Mount Moriah playing its entire catalog (Miracle Temple, Mount Moriah and The Letting Go), the Rosebuds performing Sade’s Love Deluxe, an appearance from “improviser in residence” Merzbow, and a collaboration between Xiu Xiu and Oxbow’s Eugene S. Robinson.
Single-day, three-day and VIP tickets are still available for the fest here.
