Moog Music Sponsors This Weekend’s Hopscotch Music Festival

Moog Music has announced it will be sponsoring this weekend’s Hopscotch Music Festival, which showcases some of North Carolina’s finest musicians while pairing them with notable national and international artists. Slated to bring over 10,000 attendees to downtown Raleigh, Hopscotch is the second biggest new music festival in North Carolina after Moog’s own festival, Moogfest.

“Hopscotch is doing great things for music lovers in our state by bringing boundary pushing artists to North Carolina and putting local bands on a larger platform. Moog has always supported musicians that aren’t afraid to take risks and we’re honored to support festivals like Hopscotch that showcase these artists. It’s a great time to be a music fan in North Carolina with Hopscotch and Moogfest happening almost back to back on the calendar,” said Emmy Parker, Moog Sr. Marketing and Brand Manager.
 
Moog’s Hopscotch stage at the Hive @ Busy Bee Café, will feature some of North Carolina’s most experimental genre bending musicians, including: Found sound sculptor, Feltbattery; avant-garde jazz trio, The Hot at Nights; DJ’s for change, Beat Report; heart breaking fuzz-folk outfit, The Toddlers; and experimental-electro-metal duo Tomas Phillips and Craig Hilton.
 
Festival goers will also get a treat when DJ, Producer, and founder of Fool’s Gold records, Nick Catchdubs, hits the Moog stage. Fool’s Gold has signed and supported some of the most influential and experimental hip-hop and electronic artists of the last three years, including Moogfest alumni, Chromeo. 
 
To show its support for music fans in its home state of North Carolina, Moog will be welcoming each Hopscotch ticket holder at Wrist Band City in Downtown Raleigh’s Sheraton Hotel with giveaways, a daily raffle of their handcrafted effects pedals and the chance to play Moog’s iconic analog synthesizers.
