Hopscotch 2014 Day Party Series

Adding to the recent announcements of POSTERscotch and the SiteWork/Hopscotch artist projects, Hopscotch Music Festival is happy to reveal its 2014 Day Party Series Presented by Etix & Budweiser.

From the beginning, Hopscotch's day party offerings have been a favorite of fans and bands alike—a locally focused afternoon complement to the official festival, which runs for three nights across 12 venues in downtown Raleigh. The parties are a culmination of coordination between venues, artists, promoters, and supporters; they all want more people to enjoy the revelry that is Hopscotch weekend.

We've worked hard to keep these additional festival features free and open to the public. Please support them by buying your 3-Day or 1-Day pass to Hopscotch, or your single City Plaza ticket—after all, day parties are just the beginning to the main event each night. All available tickets are on sale here.

Hopscotch returns to downtown Raleigh for the fifth time this Sept. 4-6 (three weeks!) and in what has become an August tradition, we're pleased to announce the 2014 day parties:
