R. Kelly, Bjork and Belle & Sebastian to Headline Pitchfork Festival
R. Kelly, Bjork and Belle & Sebastian will headline the annual Pitchfork Music Festival. The traditionally indie-focused event will take place at Chicago’s Union Park from July 19-21. The festival’s full lineup, which will include dozens of acts, will be announced over the coming weeks. While Bjork and Belle & Sebastian are in line with the festival’s indie-rock focus, R & B singer R. Kelly is a surprising move for the usually hipster-focused musical event.
The festival is offering a special layaway program that allows fans to purchase the pass in three installments. In addition to its musical offerings, the Pitchfork Music Festival also features 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 to its 50,000 attendees of all ages from all over the world.
