Pitchfork Music Festival Announces 15th Anniversary Lineup

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will headline the Pitchfork Music Festival’s 15th iteration alongside the National and Run the Jewels. The headliners make sense with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs front-woman Karen O recently having said in an interview that she’s “ready to make some new music.” The National also played the very first run of Pitchfork Festival back in 2006.

The Chicago festival put together by the music outlet, Pitchfork, has featured some of the best artists across the music industry in various genres. It will run from Friday, July 17 through Sunday, July 19, at Chicago’s Union Park.

Pitchfork Editor-in-chief, Puja Patel said about the festival, “for the 15th anniversary of Pitchfork Music Festival, we’re excited to showcase musicians who have been formative to our readers and pivotal to their respective communities.”
