Pitchfork Music Festival Fri Apr 09 2010

Pitchfork Rounds Out the Bill

It's been sighs of relief and gasps of disbelief all week between the letter and number games and parties surrounding the final announcements of Chicago's two biggest summer music fest line-ups, and if you thought Pitchfork's couldn't get any better, boy were you wrong. Sure we were psyched about LCD Soundsystem, Pavement and Modest Mouse, but now that the full lineup has rounded out, we would be crazy to be anywhere else but Union Park July 16th through 18th.

Filling out the bill are: Big Boi, Wolf Parade, Why?, Major Lazer, Robyn, Liars, Beach House, Neon Indian, Free Energy, Local Natives, Real Estate, The Tallest Man On Earth, Delorean, Surfer Blood, Washed Out, Best Coast, Sharon Van Etten, jj and Netherfriends. Phew! Hurry up and nab those one-day passes (three-day passes sold out long ago, and in record time) before they're gone, too!

See the final full line-up after the jump.
