Pitchfork Music Festival Full Lineup Now Revealed

The Chicago music fan’s favorite festival (sorry Lolla), Pitchfork Music Festival has now released its full festival lineup. After initially teasing us with a partial lineup—released way back in February–and then following that with more successive teaser updates, indie buzz magnate Pitchfork is gave the final updates, completing their list.

Some of the new artists include such indie stars as Beach House, Real Estate (!), Atlas Sound (!!), Cults, Nicolas Jaar (!!!), and Wild Flag.

The festival takes place July 13-15 in Chicago’s Union Park on the west side. The annual festival features several prominent indie acts, often including the buzziest bands of the year (e.g. Grimes, A$AP Rocky, and Youth Lagoon), as well as hosting various music and clothing vendors, and a healthy variety of food stands. Tickets are on sale on their website for individual days, as three-day passes have already sold out. Day tickets cost $45. (An aside: the price of admission is worth it to have access to Chicago Soydairy’s Temptation Vegan Ice Cream)

    Personally, I might be most excited to see Ty Segall -and- Thee Oh Sees on the same day. My body probably won’t be able to handle it.
