Pitchfork Music Festival Chicago Announces 2019 Lineup


The 14th annual Pitchfork Music Festival will take place at Union Park in Chicago July 19 – 21. Organizers of the event revealed the lineup, which includes headliners HAIM, The Isley Brothers and Robyn.

The Isley Brothers’ Saturday performance comes in celebration of the group’s 60th anniversary. Mavis Staples, Kurt Vile, Stereolab, Khruangbin, Earl Sweatshirt, Belle & Sebastian, Parquet Courts, Whitney and Neneh Cherry are among the other acts set to perform at the event. Stereolab’s set will be their first North American performance in a decade. Check out the graphic below for the full Pitchfork Music Festival 2019 lineup.

“This summer’s Festival will be my first as editor,” said Pitchfork editor-in-chief Puja Patel. “It’s exciting that it also features such an inclusive lineup. More than half the artists performing are women, including modern pioneers of indie rock and hip-hop, legends of soul and R&B, and a headlining set by the dance-pop icon Robyn. For a national festival that’s so important to a larger music community, the scope of this year’s booking feels especially meaningful.”

“There are some one-of-a-kind moments in our lineup this year,” said Pitchfork festival director Adam Krefman, “not just big celebratory moments, but also moments with artists who have collaborated recently or have had clear influences on each other over the years. It’s a sign of Pitchfork’s standing in the festival landscape that we’re able to pull together such a special event. And we’re fortunate to have an audience who’s ready to follow us down these curatorial rabbit holes, eager to be surprised year after year.”
