FESTIVAL: Björk on bill for Chicago's indie Pitchfork
This year's Pitchfork Music Festival will take place July 19-21 in Chicago's Union Park. Today, we're excited to confirm that this year's headliners will be R. Kelly, Björk, and Belle and Sebastian. The full lineup, which will consist of over 40 artists, will be announced in the coming weeks.
In addition to its musical offerings, the Pitchfork Music Festival will also feature a wide array of other activities. The fest not only supports local businesses and economy with its 50 individual vendors and specialty fairs, but also promotes the Chicago arts community as a whole.
