Pitchfork Festival 2019 dates announced, tickets on sale
Chicago’s annual Pitchfork Music Festival returns to Union Park from July 19-21. The lineup is still TBA, but early bird three-day passes are on sale now, and prices will increase after this batch of tickets sells out.
There’s also a “Pitchfork PLUS” option, which offers:
* Access to curated food and cocktails from a notable Chicago restaurant
* Private bars
* Air-conditioned bathrooms
* An elevated viewing platform of the Blue Stage
* Shaded seating and dining areas
* Cell-phone charging stations
* Complimentary storage lockers
* Exclusive expedited entry to the festival
* “Come and Go” re-entry access to festival grounds
* A welcome bag with festival essentials and merchandise coupon
* Free ice cream and coffee, and more to be announced
Though we aren’t sure who’s playing Pitchfork 2019 yet, Tirzah seems like a good guess. Her debut album Devotion got Best New Music last year, and she just announced her first-ever US shows, including a Brooklyn one-off right before Pitchfork Fest. Also, maybe Stereolab? They’re back in action and touring but have July totally empty at the moment.
UPDATE: The lineup is announced, and it does indeed include both Stereolab and Tirzah, plus headliners Robyn, The Isley Brothers, HAIM, and much more.
Last year’s Pitchfork Festival had Lauryn Hill, Chaka Khan, Fleet Foxes, The War On Drugs, Blood Orange, Tame Impala, Courtney Barnett, and more. Pictures of last year are in the gallery above. Watch Fleet Foxes’ full set below.
