In 2010, Greg Lowenhagen started the Hopscotch Music Festival, which takes place in downtown Raleigh annually.

Abstract:
The Art of Cool Festival in Durham has added rappers, DJs, and neo-soul singers to the line-up of jazz and hip-hop musicians. Few young working groups are more emblematic of such a mix than The Internet, a Los Angeles-based, Grammy-nominated R&B/soul band. The Internet is based on a shared musical appreciation of the power of hip-hop and the sophistication of jazz.

This week, Moogfest will at last arrive in Durham after a year and a half of anticipatory debate, analysis, and excitement. The ambition of Moogfest 2014, and the financial flop that followed, helped push the event to Durham after failed investments. Organizers have since gained support by a local network of sponsors aspiring to develop the region's growing tech image.
