Hopscotch Music Festival
Downtown Raleigh
Thursday, September 10-Saturday, September 12, 2015


The annual Hopscotch Music Festival descended on downtown Raleigh for the sixth year this weekend, with local and out-of-town bands alike convening on a handful of venues for three full days of fun. Photographers Rodney Boles and Nick Pironio captured many of the festival's acts across the stretch of the festival—click through some of their shots from the weekend below, and catch up on more of what you might have missed on the INDY music blog.
