Raleigh's annual Hopscotch Music Festival starts exactly four months from now, and today, the festival announced the lineup for its seventh installment. The big headliners this year include Erykah Badu, William Basinski, Television, Andrew Bird, Converge, Gary Clark Jr., Baroness, and area favorites Sylvan Esso.

Hopscotch announced last night that Red Hat Amphitheater has been added as a venue for Friday night—that will be Badu and Clark's bill. Memorial Auditorium is back, too. Raleigh City Plaza remains a venue with its own three headlining shows, capped by Sylvan Esso and Vince Staples on Saturday, Sept. 10.

There's an expanded hip-hop presence this year, including Young Thug, Big Freedia, Kelela, and Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals, who put in an excellent set of Durham's Art of Cool Festival over the weekend. Further-flung experimental acts, like the sax trio Battle Trance, Kid Millions and Jim Sauter, and guitarist Tom Carter make a strong showing, as do folk-minded outfits Promised Land Sound (who will also back up Lavender Country Friday night) and Joan Shelley, who will perform solo and with Maiden Radio.

You can check out the full lineup below. Tickets are on sale Thursday.
