Pitchfork designed a masterclass in festival teasers as they’ve been slowly announcing headliners and the excellent bands playing Pitchfork Fest 2018 in Chicago this year. There was a huge gasp as we finally got more Tame Impala fest headlining dates, and fans were thrilled to see the lineup round out with stellar indie acts like Alex G and Japanese Breakfast. Now that the full lineup is out, Pitchfork is looking incredibly strong. Fleet Foxes, The War on Drugs and Blood Orange are crowd pleasers while the iconic Ms. Lauryn Hill and Chaka Khan bring in the class and legacy. All in all, Pitchfork 2018 is a strong contender for one of our favorite fests of the year. Read the full lineup below and check out our recap from last year here.

You can grab your tickets here. Both 3 day passes ($175) and Single Day passes $75 are a steal, as even going one day is well worth the money.
