This past Wednesday, Pitchfork revealed a partial line up for this year’s festival, set to take place July 18th through the 20th at Chicago’s Union Park.
Friday, July 18:
Pitchfork Music Festival and All Tomorrow’s Parties present Don’t Look Back
Public Enemy performing It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
- I’m banking on a Flavor Flav appearance, Sanita hopes otherwise due to her (irrational!) fear of the man.
- Another note: Indie kids, start memorizing all of Public Enemy’s lyrics right now so you can look really cool while you rap along to every song like you’re some kind of gangster (anyone remember GZA and Clipse from last year’s festival?)
Animal Collective? Hell yes. Vampire Weekend? Not so much, but it was expected and I will deal with it.
I am also notably excited for No Age and Atlas Sound. As long as Bradford Cox (above, Atlas Sound and Deerhunter) struts around in his triumphant, dress-wearing glory, then all is well.
But, dear Pitchfork Music Festival, we here at TT&SC have some simple requests:
Born Ruffians (think Panda Bear guest-appearance!)
The Death Set
Thao with The Get Down Stay Down
The Hood Internet and/or Flosstradamus
School Of Language
The Bee Gee’s performing Saturday Night Fever (wait, what?)
This is what we predict Pitchfork will give us (not that we’re complaining):
The Magnetic Fields
Les Savy Fav
Digitalism (or Justice? Hot Chip?)
