Broken Social Scene, Panda Bear, Public Enemy lead inaugural Hopscotch Festival

Raleigh, North Carolina might not be known for its music scene, but we’re going to guess that more than a few of you will be making your way to the city this September for the inaugural Hopscotch Music Festival. After all, we’re talking the east coast version of Pitchfork, people!

Broken Social Scene, Animal Collective’s Panda Bear, and Public Enemy will lead the 120 bands set to play the city’s 10 venues between September 9th and 11th. Other notables include Atlas Sound, Fucked Up, Tortoise, Lucero, Megafaun, No Age, The Love Language, and 9th Wonder & Friends. Indie up-and-comers like Best Coast, The Golden Filter, Bear in Heaven, Javelin, and Washed Out are also confirmed to perform. Find the complete 2010 bill here.

Prices for weekend passes will range from $45 to $120, with single tickets for the City Plaza shows (where Panda Bear, Broken Social Scene, and Public Enemy are playing) set at $30. Everything will go on sale starting tomorrow, April 1st. Visit the festival’s website for more information.
