THE TRIANGLE GETS EVEN FULLER IN SEPTEMBER
The inaugural Hopscotch Music Festival has announced the addition Raekwon, Dungen, Bowerbirds, Woods and Locrian to the lineup. Scheduled for September 9-11, 2010, in downtown Raleigh, Hopscotch will present 120 bands in 10 venues over three days.
"These new acts reflect the approach we've taken from the beginning - we want diverse and noteworthy people to play Hopscotch, whether they're from here or outside the Triangle," says Hopscotch director Greg Lowenhagen. "The artists represent a variety of musical genres and do it as well as anyone. As fans first and organizers second, that was essential to us."
Hopscotch is also adding a strong pool of local acts to its inaugural lineup. Raleigh rockers Bright Young Things will play, as will Chapel Hill's In the Year of the Pig. Asheville's Floating Action and Chapel Hill's Bellafea complete the lineup additions.
Raekwon will join 9th Wonder of Durham, NC on Friday, September 10 at Lincoln Theatre for a showcase curated by 9th Wonder. Nearly a dozen local groups will join that bill, including Actual Proof, The Away Team, Big Remo, Kaze, K-Hill, Rapsody, The Remix Project, Skyzoo and Tyler Woods.
