Tame Impala, DRAM and Raphael Saadiq Top Pitchfork Music Fest Initial Lineup

Chicago’s Pitchfork Festival—along with its Paris counterpart—has boasted a who’s-who of indie and popular music since its inception in 2005.

This year’s iteration will feature headliners like psych-rock outfit Tame Impala, rapper DRAM and R&B maven Raphael Saadiq.

“Each year we assemble a wide-ranging lineup of established and emerging artists whose work is making a significant impact on popular or underground music culture,” Pitchfork founder Ryan Schreiber said in an official statement. “This focus on progressive artists who push music forward brings together like-minded fans who care deeply about where music is headed, and that sense of community distinguishes the Pitchfork Music Festival from other summer festivals. Our ultimate goal is to create the best experience for dedicated fans, and watching the festival grow and evolve each year proves that our music-first philosophy is resonating.”

Pitchfork Music Fest Chicago will be held at the city’s Union Park from July 20-22. Tickets are available here.
