Hopscotch Music Festival released the final 34 additions and the schedule for their 2017 festival. After 7 years, the festival has expanded to a four-day format that concludes with an all-day show in Raleigh’s Red Hat Amphitheatre.
New highlights to the already stacked list of names are Kaytranada, Blanck Mass (aka Benjamin John Power of Fuck Buttons), Japanese Breakfast, the Jenn Wesner (of Wye Oak) side project Flock of Dimes, and Cayetana. See the full list below.
Also announced this week was the full festival schedule. The headliners will utilize two outdoor spaces, this year: City Plaza and the Red Hat Amphitheatre. Thursday, City Plaza will host Margo Price, Big Thief, and Skylar Gudasz. Friday will see Future Islands, The Make Up, with Birds of Avalon, while Saturday has Big Boi, iLoveMakkonen, and Body Games.
The amphitheater is running for 3 nights as well. Run the Jewels takes over Friday with Rhapsody and Busdriver. Saturday will see an all-day event being headlined by Solange with sets from Flock of Zensofly, Sir the Baptist, and more. Sunday’s hangover party is another all-day affair with Angel Olsen, Cloud Nothings, Mount Moriah, Mary Timony, and more.
