Pitchfork Music Festival Announces Its 2013 Headliners

Pitchfork Music FestivalIt seems like Pitchfork Music Festival grows in unexpected ways each and every year. But up until now, they haven’t thrown a curveball at us like this year’s headliners. For those of you heading up to Chicago this year, expect to see R. Kelly, Björk and Belle and Sebastian headline the festival. I’m not sure we have ever witnessed such an eclectic mix, but it should certainly be a treat for those that are a fan of any of the three. Pitchfork Music Festival goes down July 19-21 in Chicago’s Union Park. Tickets are on sale now.

    Yeah, there will definitely be a heavy dose of post-modern irony in the crowd for Kells. But…then again, I got friends in Billyburg that actually paid ticket price to see him at MSG a couple months ago. So maybe the cool white kids actually, genuinely love him now? I can’t navigate this confusion…

    It wouldn’t be Pitchfork without huge doses of ironic nostalgia.

    That AND the fact that I feel like people will be there to just kind of laugh at (and not really along with) Kells. I’m not saying I haven’t but I wouldn’t pay to watch him in concert.

    Huge draws but they also seem like tired acts, IMO. What year is it? 2005?
