In case you hadn’t heard, CAM Raleigh is a venue for this year’s Hopscotch Music Festival. Now in its third year, The Independent Weekly’s Hopscotch Music Festival brings 175 bands to 15 venues in downtown Raleigh. Intended to highlight the Triangle’s music scene by pairing exciting local talent with notable national and international artists, Hopscotch offers choices in just about every genre imaginable—rock, hip-hop, alt-country, metal, dance, punk, classical, noise, drone, folk, and more. It is a festival that thrives on the variety and quality of its lineup, and this year, with roughly 35% of the musicians hailing from Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and other nearby locales, it’s a testament to both this region’s musical diversity and its national relevance.
