Pitchfork Fest 2017 lineup (PJ Harvey, Angel Olsen, Arab Strap, LCD, Ride, more)

pitchfork fest 2017

Like they did last week with the headliners, Pitchfork is slowly revealing bands playing this summer’s Pitchfork Festival via a painting in progress over Facebook Live. UPDATE: The full lineup has now been announced. See it below.

Maybe the biggest surprise is Arab Strap, who revealed last year that they’d be reuniting for 20th anniversary shows. This is their first US reunion date announced.

As you know, the headliners are LCD Soundsystem, A Tribe Called Quest and Solange. Other big names include Dirty Projectors, Danny Brown, Thurston Moore Group and Vince Staples on day one; PJ Harvey, Angel Olsen, The Feelies, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Mitski and Madlib on day two; and Nicolas Jaar, The Avalanches, Ride and American Football on day three.

Each day has exciting stuff lower on the bill too, like Priests and Frankie Cosmos on day one; Weyes Blood, Jeff Rosenstock, Cherry Glazerr and Vagabon on day two; and Pinegrove and Jamila Woods on day three.

As mentioned, Pitchfork is also doing a collaboration with Solange’s Saint Heron label in conjunction with the festival:

The Saint Heron-curated event series will feature an onsite art installation, film screening, artist talks, late night jazz jam sessions, and more. These will take place from Thursday, July 13th through Sunday, July 16th at various locations throughout Chicago:
* Thursday, July 13th @ Black Cinema House at the Stony Island Arts Bank – Saint Heron curated evening of film and discussion.

* Friday, July 14th @ Soho House Chicago – Poetry reading and discussion presented by Young Chicago Authors and Saint Heron

* Saturday, July 15th @ The Promontory – Saint Heron Presents an After Fest Jazz Jam & Party featuring the select house band and special surprise guests

* Friday, July 14th – Sunday, July 16th @ On-site Saint Heron Installation Space – Saint Heron will feature works from contemporary black art makers for the duration of the festival.
