Hopscotch Music Festival Details

(Submitted) Hopscotch Music Festival Announces have announced additional artist, the event's schedule, an additional venue for the event that will take place on Sept. 8–10, 2011.

The Independent Weekly's second annual Hopscotch Music Festival, North Carolina's biggest and most diverse music festival, has expanded once more. Scheduled for Sept. 8–10, 2011, in downtown Raleigh, Hopscotch now features 150 bands in 13 venues, an expansion intended to highlight the festival's variety and the public's growing demand for access.

With the additions of Titus Andronicus, Times New Viking, Vivian Girls, Coliseum, White Ring, Pepper Rabbit, Bass Drum of Death, Diamond Rings, Xray Eyeballs, D-Town Brass, The Hairs, Brain Flannel, North Elementary and Temperance League, Hopscotch continues to offer fans even more local, national and international choices in just about every genre imaginable. The Union—located at 327 W. Davie St., No. 114—becomes the festival's 13th official venue, representing Raleigh's emerging warehouse district.

Hopscotch 2011 will be highlighted by two nights in Raleigh City Plaza, the city's most captivating downtown space. On Friday, Sept. 9, the indie rock mold-makers Guided by Voices will join Southern rock re-inventors Drive-By Truckers in the Plaza, with punchy San Francisco pop band The Dodos opening. And on Saturday, Sept. 10, The Flaming Lips—the Oklahoma psychedelic pop band that consistently creates one of music's most thrilling live spectacles—headlines City Plaza. Merge Records flagship act Superchunk opens, along with Chapel Hill buzz band The Light Pines. The 144 other bands perform in 12 clubs throughout the festival's three days. A sampling of these bands includes: Swans, Yelawolf, J Mascis, Japandroids, Twin Shadow, Black Lips, Cold Cave, Toro Y Moi, Krallice, John Vanderslice, Earth, Beans, Braids, The Necks, Bird Peterson, All Tiny Creatures, Future Islands, Beach Fossils, Rhys Chatham G3, Liturgy and KORT. Moreover, Hopscotch has carefully selected the best Triangle talent to accompany this strong mix of national and international guests. Locals representing the depth of the area's rich music scene include The Love Language, Annuals, Mount Moriah, The Old Ceremony, Horseback, King Mez, Des Ark, Soft Company, Spider Bags and Last Year's Men.

Due to increased demand from fans, Hopscotch has added The Union, a venue within Raleigh's warehouse district that maintains the festival's closely knit, walkable footprint established in 2010. This addition allows for more attendees, but as importantly, it provides Hopscotch the opportunity to present even more exciting bands. Ragged New Jersey anthem wreckers Titus Andronicus, newly minted Merge distorters Times New Viking, power punks Coliseum and ghastly trunk rattlers White Ring join the lengthening
