Dates for 2013 music festivals are coming in at a rapid pace (which we love). The Raleigh showcase festival, Hopscotch, has confirmed dates for September 5-7, 2013. This up and comer was founded by the Independent Weekly in 2010 and is really cementing its spot as a premier September festival.
Like most showcase festivals, Hopscotch features an amazing amount of bands at a very budget-friendly price. The 2012 edition saw around 175 bands playing at over 15 venues.
Tickets for the festival go on sale February 1st, 2013. You can also win VIP passes:
