At last: The Pitchfork lineup is complete

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

After stringing us out f-o-r-e-v-e-r before announcing the full roster of acts for the fourth annual Pitchfork Music Festival in Union Park on July 18-20, promoters have made the entire lineup and daily schedule public (though rumblings are they still have one more surprise in store at some other point this season).

The verdict: It's a strong bill, but quite obviously suffering from festival glut, that intense, often corporate-funded battle with the new plethora of big-business logopaloozas trying to remake the summer concert season, for better or worse, as chronicled earlier and often on this blog.

The P'fork goods for 2008 follow the jump.
