Sannhet in Raleign for Hopscotch last year (more by Karen A Mann)
Sannhet

"Hopscotch Music Festival is celebrating its 5th Anniversary this September, 4-6. Featuring more than 160 bands over 3 days in downtown Raleigh, Hopscotch is increasingly recognized for adventurous lineups, incredible performances, and a fan-friendly atmosphere. From a large outdoor main stage in Raleigh City Plaza to intimate club shows, the festival offers music in almost every genre imaginable--rock, hip-hop, metal, folk, drone, electronic, etc.--and its schedule highlights this diversity each year."
Tickets for Hopscotch 2014 will go on sale Saturday, March 1.

In 2013 we caught both Sleep and Pig Destroyer at the fest which is not afraid to throw some metal into the mix. Stay tuned for the 2014 lineup, and meanwhile get excited for the Merge Festival which is happening this year in North Carolina too.

Moogfest is in Asheville (Mountain Oasis too) but not very close to Raleigh.

Definitely one of the best festivals in the US. Why can't New York have something similar?
