Tame Impala last performed in the United States—well, they last performed at all—when the band headlined the Panorama Music Festival in New York City last July. The Australian rockers’ set marked only their second U.S. date of the year, which made sense considering they planned to take a bit of a hiatus in 2017.
Tame Impala doesn’t yet have much planned for 2018 either, but one thing they do have in the works is a headlining set at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival, which is slated to take place in Union Park from July 20th to 22nd. The supremely hip festival, which is put on by the supremely hip music publication of the same name, just announced its initial lineup, and the Kevin Parker-led band is at the top of the bill for Friday.
In addition to the massively popular psych-rockers, Pitchfork Music Festival will also feature performances by acts like DRAM, Raphael Saadiq, Japandroids, and Kelela. The first wave of artists was announced one-by-one via a Facebook live feed as each act’s name was painted on a mural in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. The drawn out process will be repeated when the next few waves of artist are revealed in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for info on the festival’s expanding lineup and—hopefully—more Tame Impala tour dates in the United States.
