Since 2010, Hopscotch has taken place in the heart of downtown and attracted visitors from across the country. It’s a vibrant and community-centered celebration of music, art, and culture that blends local flavor with nationally-recognized acts.
The festival is widely known for its diverse lineup with genres ranging from punk to hip-hop and everything in between (plus some standup comedy). Household names such as Denzel Curry, Pavement, and Japanese Breakfast–to name a few–play alongside independent NC-based artists going big like TiaCorine and Truth Club.
