2011 Pitchfork Festival Lineup Announced

Yep, it’s that time again — concert festival time. In Chicago, one of the highlights is Pitchfork, which takes place July 15-17 at Chicago’s Union Park. The lineup is out — or at least part of it — and so far it looks like another strong showing.

Fleet Foxes will breeze into the windy city on the heels of their latest record and will share time with Animal Colective (who couldn’t be more different), TV on the Radio and Cut Copy, also with a new album. Others include the Dismemberment Plan, Deerhunter, Destroyer, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, James Blake, OFWGKTA, Das Racist, Kylesa, Curren$y (wonder if they know Ke$ha), Woods, Yuck and Sun Airway.

According to the website, “many more” will be announced soon.
