RALEIGH, N.C. -

For the fourth year, the Hopscotch Music Festival will take over downtown Raleigh for three days, and this year's lineup is promised to be "the best ... we've ever assembled."

"This is the fourth Hopscotch, and I'm confident it's the best lineup we've ever assembled," festival co-director Grayson Currin said. "I believe we push some boundaries harder than we have before, with several experimental artists making some of today's most bleeding-edge music on the slate.

"But that's balanced with incredible pop and dance music, great old-time and country offerings, garage rock and our best docket of heavy metal to date."

Kicking off Sept. 5, Hopscotch features three nights of music, with nearly 175 bands spanning 15 venues throughout downtown Raleigh. The pièce de résistance of the festival are its City Plaza shows on Friday, Sept. 6 and Saturday, Sept. 7.

Headlining Friday night is one-half of the multi-platinum Atlanta hip-hop duo Outkast, Big Boi. Baltimore's Future Islands and the Triangle's own Gross Ghost are set to anchor that show.

And on Saturday, Spirtualized will headline a night that also includes Raleigh's The Lollipops and '90s alternative rock stalwarts The Breeders playing their landmark 1993 album "Last Splash."

Of course, as with year's past, the rest of the lineup is sprinkled with some 'bout-to-break gems, as well as lesser-known bands spanning the gamut of genres and a healthy selection of local artists.

Notably, Local Natives, the Velvet Underground's John Cale, Sleep, Kurt Vile and the Violators, Matthew Dear and ADULT. will all make their way to the Triangle this September.

Of note locally, Mount Moriah will play their entire catalog, and The Rosebuds will play Sade's "Love Deluxe" from start to finish. Raleigh bluegrass traditionalists Chatham County Line will also curate a four-band bill at the Long View Center.

VIP wristbands and three-day wristbands are available for $180 and $125, respectively. Single-day passes and individual City Plaza show tickets will be available in June.
