Festivals used 2021 as a testing site for new protocols to make sure that audiences can enjoy live music safely. Pitchfork Music Festival, which was Paste’s first festival back, signaled a return to normalcy. Today (March 8), they share their 2022 lineup as they return to their Union Park home in Chicago for their second year since the pandemic.
The stacked lineup includes The National, who played the festival’s first year, Mitski and The Roots. Additional headliners include Spiritualized, Parquet Courts, Japanese Breakfast, Lucy Dacus, Toro y Moi, Earl Sweatshirt and a rare performance from Noname. The diverse lineup boasts acts across all genres.
“This year’s lineup is a celebration of the rising indie class, and those who continue to pave the way for innovation,” said Puja Patel, editor-in-chief of Pitchfork, in a statement. “Our goal was to highlight a diverse group of artists who are taking their musical genres to new heights, and I’m proud of how it’s come together.”
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 11 at 10 a.m. CT, with payment plans available for all ticket types.
