A Tribe Called Quest, Solange & LCD Soundsystem to headline Pitchfork Music Fest

Andrew Barber

They’re baaack

My personal favorite Chicago music festival, Pitchfork Music Fest, returns to Union Park on July 14-16 for their yearly installment. And this years headliners have just been revealed: A Tribe Called Quest, Solange and LCD Soundsystem.

TRIBE! SOLANGE! Serious. What else do they have up their sleeve? Well, that hasn’t been revealed yet as they plan to roll out the rest of the lineup over the next six weeks. The good news? Early bird tickets just went on sale. Three days and one day. Grab them here. 

Check back for more info. See you there.

Update: turns out there’s some exciting activations surrounding this year’s Pitchfork fest, including a special collaboration with Solange’s Saint Heron brand. Get the details below.

Additionally, the Pitchfork Music Festival is honored to announce a special collaboration with Saint Heron, the innovative label and arts platform founded by Solange Knowles.
