CHICAGO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Indie music lovers will be lining the stage as the Pitchfork Music Festival returns for its fifth year this weekend.
From July 16th through 18th in Chicago’s Union Park, the festival will feature live music by headliners including Modest Mouse, LCD Soundsystem, and Pavement.
More than 40 additional acts will perform at the festival, including Broken Social Scene, Robyn, Big Boi, Major Lazer, Panda Bear, Bear Coast, The Tallest Man on Earth, Titus Andronicus, and Surfer Blood.
Organizers announced this week that the sets will be streamed live via the festival’s website.
Pitchfork began its festival webcast three years ago, alongside several other festivals who now do their own live streams. Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Glastonbury are among festivals that have used a webcast element for their 2010 events according to The Independent of London.
With an estimated 50,000 attendees in 2009, Pitchfork is a relatively small festival, but features cheap tickets; $90 for three days according to The Independent of London.
Three-day tickets sold out in less than a week, but the festival has announced to open a small batch of additional tickets on July 15. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
