Hopscotch Fest drops no-so-subtle line-up hints

The big announcement about the Hopscotch Music Festival was supposed to happen at the end of February, but the month came and went. It's a big undertaking, so it's natural that things are taking a little longer than planned, but in the meantime, we're getting a bit antsy. The organizers have been dropping some not-so-subtle hints about the line-up on Twitter, so check out the six bands that are just a drop in the collective bucket below.

We'll bring you the big announcement as soon as we can. It'll hopefully be in the next few weeks.

[UPDATE: The event is on Sept. 9, 10 and 11. According to info that's popped up on etix, three-day, all venue passes will be $85. A three-day pass for just clubs will be $45. There will be VIP three-day passes for $120. It's not clear yet what each price level will entail. There will also be individual tickets available for shows at City Plaza on Sept. 10 and 11 for $30 and $25 respectively. We'll get this all cleared up once the official announcement is made, but at least you have an idea about how much money you need to set aside.]

Bands known thus far:
Bear in Heaven
First Rate People
Washed Out

I'm going to buy four VIP wristbands and wear them like Swatch watches.
