Among other acts on this year’s bill are Local Natives, John Cale, Sleep, Earl Sweatshirt, Low, Future Islands, Matthew Dear, Oblivians, the Rosebuds, Action Bronson, Marnie Stern, Wolf Eyes, Merzbow, Waxahatchee, Plume Giant, Mount Moriah, Double Negative, Pig Destroyer, Ryan Hemsworth, Grouper, American Aquarium, Schooner, Gorguts, Dan Friel, Sleep and Inter Arma.

The 2012 edition of Hopscotch Festival brought headliners Jesus and Mary Chain and the Roots, as well as Azure Ray, Built to Spill, Dan Deacon, Killer Mike, the Mountain Goats, Shovels & Rope, Hundred Waters, Yo La Tengo and Young Magic. Spin called last year’s fest “one of the best and most eclectic music festivals in America,” and Pitchfork named it one of the “20 essential festivals of summer 2012.”
