WUNC Music was on the scene on Saturday with a free music stage set. "We were so very lucky to have so many talented artists on the WUNC Music Stage on Saturday. Amazing performances all day from Eric Bachmann, Rosali, Phil Cook, Israel Nash, and Wild Child," said WUNC Music's music director Brian Burns.

"Hopscotch is fast becoming one of the premiere music festivals in the Southeast.  The booking for this year's event was remarkable.  On Saturday alone I got to see Liz Phair, MC50, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Mind Over Mirrors, Sarah Shook and The Jayhawks but still missed a dozen other incredible bands.  It's overwhelmingly great," said WUNC program director David Brower.

"This is an incredibly important event for our community.  It's a focal point for the creative economy with impact that will resonate for months," Brower continued. "It was a real pleasure to partner with Hopscotch this year.  They are passionate and all worked with seemingly boundless energy.  It's inspiring."
