Solange, Future Islands, Big Boi, Run the Jewels Headline Hopscotch 2017

Posted by on Tue, May 9, 2017 at 10:26 AM

Raleigh's Hopscotch Music Festival just announced the lineup for this year. And, y'all: It looks good.

Solange is this year's biggest name, an exciting and major get for Hopscotch. Future Islands, who've come a long way since packing the Berkeley Café at the first Hopscotch, sit in the second headlining slot, alongside Run the Jewels and Angel Olsen. Big Boi, who was supposed to perform at Hopscotch in 2013 but had to cancel, is up there, too.

As in years past, the lineup boasts a broad array of styles, running the gamut from rowdy rock (Protomartyr, Richard Lloyd, Mary Timony playing songs by her former band, Helium) to excellent hip-hop (Noname, Oddisee & Good Compny), metal (Thou, Pallbearer), and a mix of long-time favorites and up-and-coming young acts.

Hopscotch 2017 runs from September 7-10, and tickets are on sale here. You can read the full lineup, which apparently stands to grow a little more, below.
