Reunited alternative-era heroes Pavement, modern rockers Modest Mouse, dance-rock wizards LCD Soundsystem, indie-pop diva St. Vincent, rapper Raekown and singer-songwriter Cass McCombs will be among the headlining acts when the fifth annual Pitchfork Music Festival takes place in Union Park on July 16 to 18, the promoters announced today.
Tickets for the festival go on sale at noon via www.pitchforkmusicfestival.com. Single-day tickets are $40, three-day passes are $90, and this year for the first time day one will feature a full roster of bands instead of the music starting on Friday night.
Promoters announced only about a quarter of the acts, with more names to be added to the list in coming weeks. Modest Mouse will perform on Friday; LCD Soundsystem and Raekwon will take the stage on Saturday, and Pavement, St. Vincent, Lightning Bolt, Cass McCombs, Here We Go Magic and Sleigh Bells will close things out on Sunday.
