Local News…Richmond, VA voted next Hipster city

It seems Richmond, Virginia has won a poll that was put on by CultureMap that asked ‘Which city is going the be the next Hipster city?’

Besides Richmond, the other city choices were:


  • Chattanooga, TN
  • Asheville, NC
  • Burlington, VT
  • Detroit, MI
  • Pittsburgh, PA

It seems they think Austin, TX is loosing it’s edge, so it wasn’t even a choice. Richmond won with 72% of the votes.

Here’s what they had to say about Richmond at the site –

The Rumpus named Richmond one of the most inhabitable hipster cities for post-graduates (and it seems like every indie band you meet is from here).

Is that supposed to be a good thing?

Anyway..bring on the Music Festivals!

I already highly recommend the Watermelon Fest in the ‘hip’ neighborhood of Carytown.
