    Stolen from brooklynvegan:

    The Pitchfork Music Festival will be three days this year - July 13, 14, & 15. Friday night is in conjunction with ATP, and this is pretty cool:

    In an exciting fusion of forces behind festivals from opposite sides of the Atlantic, Pitchfork will team up with the UK event All Tomorrow's Parties to present a bill dubbed DON'T LOOK BACK. The Friday night lineup will highlight legendary rock, rap and experimental acts, each performing one of their classic albums in its entirety.

    "The 2007 Pitchfork Music Festival will present more than 40 acts on three stages over three days." First announced acts: CAT POWER, CLIPSE, IRON & WINE, GRIZZLY BEAR and PROFESSOR MURDER (all scheduled to appear Saturday, July 14) and OF MONTREAL, GIRL TALK, JAMIE LIDELL and KEN VANDERMARK'S POWERHOUSE SOUND (set to play Sunday, July 15). Tickets on sale Monday.


    God, if Neutral Milk Hotel plays on Friday, I'd die, but I don't see that ever happening.

    You forgot to mention that they're going to have a stage opening night where influential acts play their "classic albums" in their entirety.

    "Opening night will be devoted to "legendary" rock, rap and experimental music performers, each doing a "classic album" in its entirety, a festival spokesman says."

    According to: http://leisureblogs.chicagotribune.c...ork_fest_.html

    Sorry, didn't see it.....guess I'm just too freakin' excited!

    Who do you think the "legendary" acts will be?

    Last year I had VIP passes, and it was the most fun I've ever had in my entire life. I ate a ton of free ice cream from the ice cream dude, free whiskey at the aftershow party and got to stalk devendra banhart.

    The lineup is so good for the price. They do a really good job of booking a diverse lineup, as for bigger band. I could see Arcade Fire, or maybe Sufjan headlining.

    Both are too big, I'd think.

    Pitchfork and Intonation are both good value Chicago based festivals.

    Lame.

    I mean don't get me wrong I'd love to see the SY and though I don't know Slint very well I can understand why that'd fit like shit but it becomes less special if the artists do the same thing over and over. And there are a ton of deserving artists/albums.

    That was my guess. But that would also be copying their previous shows. I'm thinking that they coup have a total coup and have a popular Chicago area band perform..."Gish" or something like that.

    Then again, Flaming Lips could do Soft Bulletin, MBV could pull a not-gonna-happen and do Loveless, D-Play could do Emergency & I, Breeders could do Last Splash...or Slanted & Enchanted (yeah, I know...never)?

    It a) would not be Smashing Pumpkins....this is a small, primarily underground festival that is dirt cheap and, as I said small. Union Park is nowhere near Grant Park, and having a band as big as SP in Chicago would sell out in seconds and b)it would not be Gish, it would be Mellon Collie (either CD 1 or 2). It was much more definitive than Gish.

    Pitchfork just posted all this on their page.

    My favorite quote is this:

    "...For the unfamiliar, ATP and Don't Look Back invite music legends to perform their seminal albums live -- in their entireties. We aren't quite ready to reveal Friday's performers, but trust us: You will not be disappointed."

    My guess: Jeff Mangum performing In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

    There is no way that is happening. Loveless is more likely.

    I think MBV is due for a comeback by default, seriously. Isn't Kevin Shields out of cash yet? Is he seriously making enough money off doing Bow wow wow remixes to live on?

    seminal and definitive are completely different concepts. the atp don't look back shows are usually the classic seminal albums, not definitive albums. for example, belle & sebastian did if you're feeling sinister instead of boy with the arab strap

    If that happened, I'd poop my long lost twin...out of excitement.

    Could he headline Coachella do you think?

    No he couldn't. Cult following, but I doubt highly that it's a big enough cult.
    Sounds like i may be visiting Chicago this summer

    A good friend at Capitol Records informed me that the All Tomorrow's Parties artist at Pitchfork Music Festival will be Bruce Willis performing The Return of Bruno in it's entirety.
