Hopscotch Day Party Series Presented by Etix

Submitted on Aug 07, 2012

For its third year, scheduled for Sept. 6–8, 2012, Hopscotch Music Festival added three large indoor venues, including the legendary Memorial Auditorium, and expanded its lineup to 170 artists. The festival is 40% larger than it was in 2010, and the level of talent coming to Raleigh is as high as it has ever been.

Today, in keeping with that overall growth, we are very happy to announce the Hopscotch Day Party Series Presented by Etix. As part of some 30 day parties happening throughout the city, Hopscotch has worked with Etix and many other partners to bring you four shows that could be considered a festival on their own. They include a two-day stand of distinctively North Carolina music at Hibernian Pub on Glenwood Avenue, a charity basketball game, concerts curated by Megafaun and The Love Language, and a street party full of some of the region’s favorite band in front of Raleigh Times Bar. In the past, Hopscotch has presented only one official day party, but in response to the energetic reception to the festival and the enthusiasm of you, the fans, we’ve opted to do more. Additionally, various record labels, blogs, restaurants, breweries, comedians, and others have worked to provide Hopscotch attendees with a bigger and more diverse roster of daytime activities. Four weeks from today, Raleigh will feature more live music—and as much fun—as at any time in its history.
