the pitchfork festival lineup is packed with your favorite artists
we give it a 10.0
Pitchfork announced the lineup for their 2015 festival, and they're keeping it very—how shall we put this—Pitchfork. Unlike their festival brethren, where headlining spots are reserved for stadium-sized acts, Pitchfork's headliners are more acquired tastes. It's a nice touch: Wilco, Sleater-Kinney, and Chance the Rapper will close out all three nights, and while all three acts definitely have huge, and hugely devoted, fan bases, they still maintain some of that Pitchfork cred. As for the rest of the festival's lineup—which includes acts like Panda Bear, Mac DeMarco, Future Islands, Perfume Genius, and many more—there is only one word we can think of to describe it and it starts with a 'P' and ends with an 'itchfork.' The festival will be held in Chicago's Union Park on July 17, 18, and 19, and tickets are on sale this very second. You can see the festival lineup, which is filled with acts you heard before anyone else, below.
