Pitchfork's 2009 Music Festival Lineup Announced
This year's fest will be held in Chicago from July 17-19, 2009.
The initial lineup heralds the return of throwback artists including Built to Spill, Yo La Tengo, Tortoise and the first Jesus Lizard show in a decade — alongside newer artists such as The National, Vivian Girls, Grizzly Bear, and The Walkmen.
One unique twist on the conventional music fest format, is that Pitchfork's Friday night will be a series of crowdsourced song sets determined by fans. Ticket holders will be able to vote on the songs from each band they would like to hear and, according to Pitchfork, "the bands will tailor their set lists accordingly".
More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.
