No, we still don't know who's playing the Pitchfork Musical Festival yet, but that's no reason not to snatch up discounted early bird passes if you already know that kind of fest is your thing. Early bird three-day passes just went on sale for $110. If you miss 'em don't fret because once those sell out regular three-day passes will be available for $130 and single day passes will be available for $60. Why you would by a single day pass over a three-day pass at this point, though, is beyond our reckoning.

TECHNICALLY this is the tenth anniversary of the Pitchfork Music Festival if you count the inaugural Intonation Fest the site curated that kicked off Union Park's beginnings as a destination festival hotspot. Officially it's the ninth anniversary of the fest under its current moniker. Whichever anniversary of the fest you choose to celebrate, the one thing that's certain is that this year it's going down Friday, July 18 through Sunday, July 20.

So what are you waiting for, get some cheap(er) tickets now!
