Pitchfork Festival Reveals Line Up, Our Wish List

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?)

Saturday, July 19:
Animal Collective
Vampire Weekend
Dizzee Rascal
No Age
Atlas Sound
Fleet Foxes

Sunday, July 20:
M. Ward
Extra Golden
El Guincho

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!)
Xiu Xiu
The Death Set
Thao with The Get Down Stay Down
The Hood Internet and/or Flosstradamus
Dirty Projectors
Neon Neon
School Of Language
Man Man
Deer Tick
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
Cadence Weapon
Black Kids
No Kids
Los Campesinos!
Digitalism (or Justice? Hot Chip?)

And . . . maybe a New Edition reunion show?
