Alright, alright, alright, alright (read in the voice of Matthew McConaughey), the 2014 Pitchfork Music Festival lineup has arrived. And, if its headliners are of any indication, Chicago's Union Park is about to go on a psychedelic acid-rap trip.
Kendrick Lamar, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Beck will take the stage during the weekend of July 18 - 20. Death Grips, Mas Ysa, and Grimes are also slated to perform their respective sets. Now in its tenth year, the little festival that could is making waves with the bigwigs. Giorgio Moroder, the focal point of Daft Punk's Grammy-winning Random Access Memories, is slated to spin a set. Now, that's something to get hyped about. Coachella can share Beck with Pitchfork, but can it say it's bringing a dance music legend to its arena? Based on this list, the correct response is: "No." Final answer, Regis.
The Lineup (so far — more will likely be added):
July 18: Beck, Giorgio Moroder, Sun Kil Moon, Factory Floor, Death Grips, Haxan Cloak, Sharon Van Etten
July 19: Neutral Milk Hotel, Tune-Yards, Mas Ysa, Pusha T, the Range, Ka, Circulatory System, The Julie Ruin, Wild Beasts
July 20: Kendrick Lamar, Grimes, Slowdive, DIIV
