Hopscotch Music Festival
When: September 8th-10th
Where: Raleigh, North Carolina
Why Go: Their 2016 line-up hasn't been announced yet, but while other music fests depend on stadium-filling acts and a forced mashing of eclectic styles, Hopscotch continues to provide bills that are a refreshing change during festival season. Who else could boast a group of headliners that ranged from the anarchic noise of Godspeed You! Black Emperor to country iconoclast Dwight Yoakum to classic punks X?
Must-See Acts: TBA
