As was just announced on the festival’s website, the fifth annual Hopscotch Music Festival takes over downtown Raleigh Sept. 4–6. Though the lineup has yet to be announced, the festival promises to spread more than 160 bands from different genres throughout Raleigh nightclubs and performance spaces, surrounding the epicenter of a large outdoor stage in Raleigh City Plaza.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Saturday, March 1, following a presale on Feb. 27 and 28 for Hopscotch email list recipients (sign up here). With tickets going on sale later than in previous years, when they were available as early as December, expect them move quickly.

Since its first installment in 2010, Hopscotch has been nationally noted for its adventurousness and diversity, from experimental music blogs all the way up to Spin and The New York Times. Formerly owned by INDY Week and co-directed, with Greg Lowenhagen, by INDY music editor Grayson Haver Currin, the festival now operates as an independent company. Currin recently stepped down from his role as co-director, with Hopscotch day-party coordinator Nathan Price replacing him.
