Set times for the 2014 Pitchfork Music Festival were announced today and we're happy to see there are no really difficult choices to make. Previous years have seen us agonize which portion of the park we should be at or strictly time how long we could hang out at a particular band's set. This time around the only time we might have to do some hustling is earlier in the day—and we're cool with that—since the evening's upper tier acts seem evenly spaced and thoughtfully placed.

Our only "gripe?" Seeing Speedy Ortiz in broad daylight at 1 p.m. on a Sunday will truly shock our senses. Our biggest question? Will Giorgio Morodor's pre-Beck set blow Mr. Hansen out of the water. If Moroder digs back to "Son Of My Father"-era material we say: quite possibly.

Three day passes and tickets for Friday are sold out, but single day tickets for Saturday and Sunday are still available.
