Pitchfork Music Festival will return to Union Park in Chicago, IL for the weekend of July 19th-21st this summer. On Wednesday, organizers of the multi-day music festival announced the lineup of performers for this year’s event, which is lead by HAIM and Mavis Staples on Friday, The Isley Brothers and Belle & Sebastian on Saturday, and Robyn and Charli XCX set to close the event out on Sunday.
Other artists included on the lineup poster for the summer 2019 event include Khruangbin, Earl Sweatshirt, Soccer Mommy, Julia Holter, Kurt Vile, Parquet Courts, Snail Mail, Amen Dunes, JPEGMAFIA, and Clairo, just to name a few. The lineup’s announcement on Wednesday also made sure to clarify that The Isley Brothers’ appearance on night two of the this year’s event will see/hear the group celebrating the 60th anniversary of their 1959 debut album, Shout!
Since beginning in 2006, Pitchfork Fest remains one of the steadier independently-run music events in what has become a grossly oversaturated festival market here in North America. According to the event website, the mid-summer event annually welcomes up to 60,000 attendees from 45 U.S. states and 26 countries, mostly thanks to the impressive mix of artists recruited to perform each year.
Single-day and three-day passes for this year’s event are now on sale for the reasonable price of $75, and $175, respectively.
