Sometime over the next 24 hours, the Pitchfork Music Festival will announce the next round of artists scheduled to partake in its 2010 festivities. According to the festival’s Facebook, among those included will be “some old friends, some newcomers, some locals, and at least animal-themed band.”
According to Time Out Chicago, Animal Collective’s Panda Bear, aka the most obvious choice ever, and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion are two of the biggest acts now set to hit Chicago’s Union Park between July 16-18. At some point, P4k approved up-and-comers Real Estate and The Smith Westerns should be announced as well.
We’ll update this post once an official announcement is made. Until then, have sweet dreams of Pavement.
