As previously reported, the 2010 Pitchfork Music Festival will be held at Chicago’s Union Park on July 16 – 18. We are pleased to announce the first batch of bands slated to perform, as well as proclaim that tickets are on sale today at 12 PM CST! This year’s festival welcomes the highly anticipated return of legendary band Pavement as they make one of their first appearances since reuniting! Pavement will perform on Sunday night. Friday features indie-rock, chart-topping mainstays Modest Mouse, while Saturday and Sunday sees performances by LCD Soundsystem, Raekwon, Here We Go Magic, St. Vincent, Lightning Bolt, Cass McCombs and Sleigh Bells. Stay tuned, as more bands will be announced in the coming weeks.
Tickets are on sale today at 12 PM CST at www.pitchforkmusicfestival.com. Single-day tickets can be purchased for $40 and three-day passes for $90. This year, Friday will feature more bands, providing festival-goers with a longer day of music. There will be no two-day passes for sale. Purchase your tickets early, as three-day passes are sure to sell out quickly!
