Announcing 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival

The 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival will return to Chicago's Union Park for an eighth year on Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21. The independently run, three-day event offers a cutting-edge lineup along with one of the most inviting, reasonably priced and rewarding weekends of music around. We are extremely excited to share this year's lineup, details of which will be announced early next year.

Don't know what to get that special someone with discerning music taste for the holidays? This year, the festival is offering a limited amount of three-day passes starting at the very low price of $95 going on sale today, December 21. Once sold out, three-day passes will be available at the regular price of $120 and single day tickets will be available for $50 each. Three-day passes always sell out very quickly, so act fast!

For the full price three-day pass, the festival is offering a special layaway program that allows purchasers to obtain the pass spread out over three payments.

Pitchfork is the essential guide to independent music and beyond. With more than four million unique readers and 40 million page views per month, the site has earned an extremely loyal following and a reputation as being the world's most trusted music publication.
