Kilo Wattson writesMusic in Pictures: Hopscotch Music Festival

The fourth annual Hopscotch Music Festival took place September 5 - 7, 2013 in Raleigh, North Carolina. It featured 175 bands in 15 venues within a 10 block radius in Raleigh's revitalized downtown area. Hopscotch Director Greg Lowenhagen came up with the idea for the festival after moving back to the Triangle area from Austin and Chicago: "When I returned from being away, I realized the Triangle, with its strong music heritage and abundance of local talent, seemed ready for a different, more nationally recognizable festival to call its own." CHIRP's Micha Ward, a native North Carolinian, was there to document the festival in photos. Click for the full line-up.
