Pitchfork announces performers for 2017 Pitchfork Festival


Pitchfork announced the rest of the lineup for the 2017 Festival, the same way they announced the headliners, on Facebook Live painting a mural. The end result was exciting, mostly because I’m a huge Vince Staples fan. I first saw Vince perform at Lolla last year and he puts on such a good show, so I’m excited to see him on the festival circuit again.

While I know many of the other acts, I’m not deeply familiar with their entire catalogs, and a great way to experience new music is by watching it live. This is how I became a huge Anderson. Paak fan at this exact festival last year.

Check out the lineup for this year. Anyone you are excited for?
