Want to see Solange at Hopscotch Music Festival? Single-day tickets going on sale

If you’ve been holding off on springing for Hopscotch Music Festival tickets because you wanted to buy for a single day rather than the whole four-day festival, the time draws nigh.

The festival is Sept. 7-10. While multi-day passes already have been on sale, one-day Hopscotch passes go on sale at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time Friday.

And with Solange as the Red Hat Amphitheater main-stage headliner for Saturday, Sept. 9, they might go quickly.

Single-day prices have yet to be announced. Weekend-long passes range from $199 for general admission to $349 for VIP.

The schedule for the festival in downtown Raleigh was announced Tuesday. Other Red Hat performers Friday are Run the Jewels, Rapsody and Busdriver.

Solange will cap off Saturday’s Red Hat shows with a day that begins at 2:15 p.m. with Zensofly and continues with Flock of Dimes, Sir the Baptist, Arrow Benjamin and Tei Shi.

Big Boi performs Saturday at 8:15 p.m. at City Plaza.

Hopscotch is expanding its venue grid on a number of fronts this year. After moving into Red Hat for the first time last year, it now has three nights of shows there. New this year is “The Basement,” which is the lower-level exhibition hall of the Raleigh Convention Center.

Close to three-dozen more acts have also been added to the schedule, which can be seen here.
