Pitchfork Festival 2011 Lineup & Schedule Announced

Last week, the festival-going public commenced drooling for perhaps the only decent summer music gathering by announcing the dates -- July 15 through 17 at Chicago's Union Park -- for the Pitchfork Music Festival. Today, the initial lineup is unfurled for all to see and critique.

At $110 for a three-day pass, this is no budget breaker. Sure, the Strokes aren't playing it, but mid-July is an awful time of year to wear skinny jeans anyhow. Check out the bands announced so far broken up by day.

Friday, July 15:

-- Animal Collective

-- James Blake

-- Das Racist

-- Curren$y

Saturday, July 16:

-- Fleet Foxes

-- The Dismemberment Plan

-- Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti

-- Woods

-- Sun Airway

-- Kylesa

Sunday, July 17:

-- TV on the Radio

-- Cut Copy

-- Deerhunter

-- Destroyer


-- Yuck

Pitchfork kindly points out that ticket-buyers should be off to the races at 1 p.m. ET today, and that, "last year, three-day passes sold out in five days, so don't put it off." Get thee to pitchforkmusicfestival.com.
