The latest festival announcement came earlier today when Pitchfork announced the three headliners for their Pitchfork Music Festival 2017: A Tribe Called Quest, Solange, and LCD Soundsystem. The festival will be taking place at Union Park in Chicago from July 14th to 16th. Tribe will be closing the show on Saturday, July 15th, while Solange will close the entire festival on Sunday. Solange’s label, Saint Heron, will also be collaborating with Pitchfork to present a series of events that weekend, which will include film screenings, artist talks, and jazz sessions.
This isn’t the only bill that A Tribe Called Quest and Solange will share this summer. They both will perform in New York City at the Panorama festival a week later.
And for our UK folk out there, we didn’t forget about y’all. The V Festival is returning on August 19th, at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and August 20th, at Weston Park in Staffordshire. Jay Z will be closing the festival. Only time will tell if there will be new Hov music at that time. Check out the entire lineup below.
Our first announcement is here!
