Complete Pitchfork Fest Sked Announced


Mark your calendars, set your GPS, for Chicago‘s Union Park
July 18-20.

By Fred Mills



That’s right, just
three more weeks to one of the annual must-attend festival events. Why,
standing around and getting backed by the Chicago sun in the middle of July is
at least as much fun as standing around and getting baked by the Tennessee sun
in the middle of June, right? (Hint: hydrate between beers. Did we mention
bring sunscreen, too?) It’s a bargain – you get Mission of Burma and PE, Animal
Collective and the Hold Steady, Spoon and Spiritualized, and a shitload more.


Pitchfork tells
us that only individual day tickets are available now (you could previously
purchase full-festival passes) and they are $30 each. For more info about the
festival and ticketing, go HERE.
