Raleigh, North Carolina's alt weekly The Independent Weekly has announced the lineup for their third-ever Hopscotch Music Festival, led this year by the Roots and the Jesus and Mary Chain, as well as Built to Spill, Yo La Tengo, Liars, Sunn O))) and Zola Jesus. Other notable acts on the bill include recently grown-up Danny Brown, SPIN's favorite anarcho-punk rappers Death Grips, the Raleigh gang of Justin Vernon-associated artists Megafaun, Colin Stetson and Field Report, and plenty of Merge Records mainstays like the Mountain Goats, Lambchop, and Wye Oak.

The 175-artist bill will take the stages September 6-8 (convenient for festival-going diehards wrapping it up at Chicago's North Coast Festival over Labor Day weekend) and tickets are currently on sale via the festival website. Hopscotch three-day VIP tickets run $169, which is a little more than half the price of a regular three-day Coachella wristband. The full lineup is below, in diplomatic, alphabetical order:
