Pitchfork Music Festival Fri Mar 25 2011

Chicago Native Neko Case Among Additions to Pitchfork Lineup

37501796htmlfile_1.jpgWe're getting more clues as to what is in store for us at Pitchfork this summer. Veteran rocker Robert Pollard's Guided By Voices and Chicago native Neko Case are at the top of today's additions to the festival's already robust lineup. The other artists announced include No Age, Gang Gang Dance, G-Side, Chrissy Murderbot, The Fresh & Onlys, Radio Dept., HEALTH, Shabazz Palaces, Baths, How To Dress Well, Kurt Vile, and Twin Sister. Plus we're promised more bands still to come.

To see who will be playing what day, check out the lineup as it sits now after the jump.

Three day passes already sold out (in record time), but single day passes are still available for $45. Pitchfork Music Festival takes place July 15-17 at Union Park.

Neko Case was born in Virginia, grew up in Tacoma, put her first album out while living in Seattle, and didn't move to Chicago until she was 30 years old. She lives in Tuscon now.

She's not a native.
