Hopscotch Festival, North CarolinaFOUR CANCELLATIONS AND KILLER MIKE AND AZURE RAY JOIN THE LINE UP!

Four artists have canceled their Hopscotch appearances for various reasons: Death Grips (who canceled all 2012 tour dates), Duchess Says, Strand of Oaks, and High Wolf will not be performing at the festival in September

Three major additions join the more than 170 bands still playing Hopscotch: Atlanta rapper KILLER MIKE—a Grammy-winning hard hitter as comfortable with political raps as he is party jams—has recently confirmed his slot at this year’s festival

After several years of solo projects, side-projects and collaborations, Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink returned to work as AZURE RAY in 2009. In spite of an excellent 2010 full-length, Drawing Down the Moon, tours have been infrequent, but Hopscotch will welcome the Saddle Creek Records veterans for an intimate and rare date during September

Great young Durham duo BAOBAB also joins Hopscotch 2012. Creating hypnotic folk music buoyed by intricate beats and textures, Baobab uses its songs as a springboard for a multimedia stage show, not as an endpoint.
