    Going off of last year's time table, we should be getting an announcement any day now. Anyone know anything?

    hahaha, ATDI that would cost too much. And theyre in europe July 12th, oops.



    I think the 2 rumors so far will happen. PJ Harvey was in their top 5 of best albums, they usually book acts that end up on their year end lists.

    Best guesses until they say something......

    Headliners:

    Pj Harvey
    Bon Iver
    Pulp


    Undercard:

    Jeff Mangum
    Purity Ring
    Grimes
    The War On Drugs
    Mr. Motherfuckin eXquire
    Real Estate
    Girls
    Frank Ocean
    Youth Lagoon
    Kendrick Lamar
    Nicolas Jaar
    Refused (long shot, but could work since they would have a week to come back this way from europe)

    You do realize the dates haven't been announced yet, correct? July 13th-15th is an assumption.

    Cut Copy did a Euro fest and Pitchfork in the same weekend last year so it could happen.

    I was saying I don't necessarily think those will be the dates. Or maybe that July 12th will be the end of their run in Europe and they will come back to play in the states, starting at pitchfork. I don't think one date in Europe is enough to rule them out.

    They are pretty much just going to play any festival thats willing to fork over the big money to get them, just so you know. Have you noticed only 2 festivals have them booked? (and both have deep pockets) Pitchfork isnt going to break the bank and be willing to lose getting other talent just for these guys. Are you going to be happy if the ticket price goes up, say $20 - $40 more because of this?

    I don't think it's likely, just possible. I'm sure they will play Lolla instead, I was just hoping to not have to, you know, go to Lolla. And for the record, yes, I would pay an additional $20 to have them there.

    odds are they won't be a any kind of proper tour. they are gonna play a few festivals and then tour the new mars volta album.

    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Well, Sparta already has some dates on their own, so its pretty obvious theyre only doing one offs.

    I admit that I don't know PJ Harvey that well, and was too young to appreciate her popularity ten, fifteen years ago. Having said that, I can't see her headlining Pitchfork - anyone else agree?

    I'm guessing Lolla may have upped its game with indie bookings.

    GYBE, The Field & Tim Hecker! Good enough for me. (Although this is considering that I plan on living back in Chicago by then, not considering actually traveling for the fest).

    Yeah, if I didn't have to travel obviously I'd go; I just need to think about who else they could possibly add. They don't announce the full lineup until after tickets are sold, right?

    Was really hoping for Pulp, but that was unrealistic. Vampire Weekend is lazier booking than Black Keys at Coachella.

    I'm always excited for aftershows. Imagine if Godspeed played at Empty Bottle, Subterranean, Schubas or Lincoln Hall

    I forgot where Liars played in 2010 for Pitchfork afterparty but it was one of the best shows by them. Thinking it was at Empty Bottle...

    They do it in stages. They'll announce a bunch later on, and then some more later.

    The Field is the only name that Id want to see from this list. Damn. Well, hopefully the other 30 names they announce can make it worth while.
    Upcoming Shows:
    Kasabian/Bo Ningen: 10/1 @ Metro

    No PJ Harvey is so disappointing. Guess she's not touring at all this year. Should be a fun weekend, but not worth flying out for.

    Godspeed is cool and everything, but I'm not going to book a ticket based on that preliminary lineup. Perhaps it will get better with additional announcements.
