Pitchfork Music Festival announced more acts for this summer's festival, July 19-21 at Union Park. Among the notable acts joining headliners Belle and Sebastian, R. Kelly and Björk are Joanna Newsom, Killer Mike, Swans, TNGHT ...And You will Know Us by the Trail of Dead and (in a non-surprise in the Chicagoist A&E offices) The Breeders, who will be performing Last Splash in its entirety.
Pitchfork already had us with the headliners, but the addition of The Breeders, Newsom and the others has this year's fest shaping up nicely. We've included the lineups as they stand currently below. Discuss the strengths and weaknesses in the comments as you will. Tickets for the festival are on sale.
