Fees are going to be bad for almost every festival in Chicago. The entertainment tax is super high.
I'm happy to have gotten in at early bird...
The P4K leak was real. Doesn't take out a whole lot from RF but it leaves Bright Eyes for either Lolla or RF.

This lineup is pretty close to my dream. I am happy I bought tickets yesterday.
The leak was real.
That was part of my thinking, too. I don't think it's legitimate.
RTJ? I think they've played a Pitchfork before.
2 of the 3. Phoebe is out as she'll be in the UK.
I don't really see The National as a Pitchfork band now but hey, I'll take it.
The National have a Pitchfork gap.
They fit in just fine when they played a few years ago.
There's definitely that odd July gap. I posted over in the Pitchfork thread but I suspect they're at it and the festival gets first midwestern...
That's what I'm leaning towards. Kind of fit that legacy act billing, too.
Curiously, more Bright Eyes dates with nothing in the midwest. They aren't booked for any of the three Chicago festivals but I want to believe...
More dates announced: Bright Eyes
