Pitchfork Music Festival Scoop on MSM Blog

2007_03_pitchforkmusicfestivalsplash.jpgWhen it rains, it pours. Greg Kot has some line-up information and ticket prices on his blog over at the Tribune for the Pitchfork Music Festival July 13-15, 2007. Tickets don't go on sale until Monday, so if you missed the cheap Lolla tickets like the rest of us, put that money towards this little festival.

Cat Power, Clipse, Of Montreal, and Iron and Wine are a few of the bands that Greg lists as playing the now 3-day festival. About 40 artists are expected over the three days and it seems there will be some interesting shows with the Friday night shows slated for playing albums in their entirety live.

Look for the headliners on Pitchfork's site Friday with more performers being announced in upcoming weeks.

July 13 - 15, Union Park, 3-day pass $45, Saturday and Sunday package $35, Saturday or Sunday only $25, Friday only $15.
