Tierra Whack replacing Earl Sweatshirt at Pitchfork; win tix to This is Not This Heat in Brooklyn
The 2018 edition of Pitchfork Music Festival is this weekend in Chicago’s Union Park and there have been a few lineup/schedule changes. Earl Sweatshirt, who was supposed to play Friday (7/20) at 6:15 on the Green Stage, has dropped off the lineup and Tierra Whack has been added at 4:15 on the Green Stage. This has shifted a few other performances around: Saba will play the Red Stage at 5:15, while Syd will now perform on the Green Stage at 6:15 (which conflicts with Big Thief’s 6:30 Blue Stage set). Updated Pitchfork schedule is below.
One of Pitchfork’s rarer performances this year is This is Not This Heat, which is Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward, two thirds of art rock / post-punk legends This Heat. Right after Pitchfork, This is Not This Heat will head to Brooklyn to play Pioneer Works on Monday, July 23. Tickets are still available but if you’d like to go for free, we’re giving away two pairs.
