After revealing its headliners last week via the live-streamed painting of a mural, Pitchfork Music Festival followed a similar strategy today when it revealed the rest of its lineup. Luckily, this announcement seemed to move along much quicker than that first one and fans were able to see the solid list of artists put together for this year’s festivities.
With LCD Soundsystem, A Tribe Called Quest, and Solange topping the bill, it would have been hard to go wrong, but following through in splendid form, Pitchfork added names like Dirty Projectors, PJ Harvey, The Feelies, Angel Olsen, Hiss Golden Messenger, The Avalanches, Mitski, and George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic to flesh out what should end up being a great weekend in Chicago this summer. This also notably marks the first announced performance for Dirty Projectors behind this year’s self-titled album, as well as The Feelies’ first non-East Coast show since 2009. Read our recent features on Dirty Projectors and The Feelies here and here, respectively.
