Published Mar 10, 2008Pitchforkmedia has announced its fourth annunal Pitchfork Music Festival will return to Chicago's Union Park on Friday, July 18 through Sunday, July 20, 2008. And hey, they already have a good-sized, jaw-dropping line-up confirmed.
Though listed as "the first acts to be announced," which means they'll probably have plenty of tricks up their sleeves, pulling out all of the stops for some even bigger names, the popular music site has roped in Public Enemy to perform their seminal album, It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, on July 18 as part of the All Tomorrow's Parties "Don't Look Back" series. (Last year saw Sonic Youth, GZA/Genius and Slint play their classics.)
The rest of the names announced don't look too shabby either:
Saturday, July 19
Sunday, July 20
Another two dozen acts will be announced leading up to the show's July dates.
Tickets go on sale this Wednesday (March 12) through the festival's website, and are priced at $30 per day, with a limited number of two- and three-day passes priced at $50 and $65 respectively.
