Festival News: Pitchfork Music Fest announces headliners, Lightning In A Bottle moves
A week after Coachella threw its spectacular lineup in all of our misshapen faces, Pitchfork announced the headliners for their annual Chicago festival. R. Kelly, Bjork, and Belle and Sebastian, three not-so-similar but still pretty big names will be headlining the three day event, with many more acts soon to be named to the billing.
In case you've forgotten, whatever happens at Pitchfork cannot happen at Lollapalooza, do to clauses in the festivals' contracts. So for any fans hoping for some combination of those three names - maybe next year.
Tickets for the July 19-21 fest are on sale now, with three-day passes coming in at $120, and single-day passes for a modest $50.
As well, California's annual electronic Lightning in a Bottle festival has announced some changes.
With the event's eight anniversary coming, organizers have moved the festival to Lake Skinner County Park in Temecula, California. Previously, the even was held at Oak Canyon Park in Orange County on Memorial Day Weekend. As well, the new version of the event will take place from July 11-15.
Tickets for LIAB, which features physical artists as well as sustainable environment practices, will go on sale February 12.
