Pitchfork Music Festival Fri Feb 14 2014
Pitchfork Music Festival, one of the city's most beloved summer music festivals, has announced the initial wave for its 2014 lineup, and let me tell you, it is good. Headlining acts have been announced as Beck, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Kendrick Lamar. As Beck has been in the game for a long time and is releasing a forthcoming album this year, and Neutral Milk Hotel released their last album in 1998, the lineup is stacked with shows by established artists sure to make the indie soul within us the happiest festival attendee there ever was. Not to mention the fact that Kendrick Lamar is the headliner to close out the festival, whose live shows, speaking from personal experience, are of the best caliber.
The festival dates are July 18th through July 20th at Union Park, and promise a weekend full of varied musical entertainment from a vast array of genres, from songstress Sharon Van Etten, to indie singer with a tribal flair tUnE-yArDs, to electronic-pop hybrid Grimes, the festival has set the bar high with its initial lineup announcement.
Tickets are on sale in varying tiers. For $130, you can procure your own three-day pass, while single day passes can be purchased for $60. The full (initial) lineup announcement is listed below, for your festival excitement-building pleasure.
