The inaugural Hopscotch Music Festival was just announced for the weekend of September 9th-11th in downtown Raleigh, NC, and the lineup is heavy on bands that we love around here like Tortoise, Atlas Sound, Panda Bear, Broken Social Scene and more…

Tickets are now on sale and $85 will get you a wristband allowing access to all of the shows, so follow their Twitter account for the latest updates straight from the source. I may actually try to go to this as one of my best friends lives in Raleigh, so I could easily swing a spot on the floor to crash and enjoy a weekend full of my favorite music.

Update: the following artists have been added to the lineup.

Actual Proof, The Away Team, Bellafea, Big , , Bright Young Things, , Floating Action, In the Year of the Pig, Kaze, K-Hill, Locrian, , Rapsody, The Remix Project, Skyzoo, ,
