The annual Pitchfork Music Festival always delivers a diverse performance lineup and this year is no different. The three-day Chicago event boasts a gender-equal bill featuring headliners Lauryn Hill, DRAM, Earl Sweatshirt and more.
Ms. Hill is expected to perform her classic solo debut album The Miseducation Lauryn Hill in its entirety in celebration the LP's 20th anniversary. Other artists appearing at the festival include Raphael Saadiq, Noname, Chaka Khan, Syd (from the Internet) and more.
“Since the festival’s inception, we’ve tried to present the most unique and eclectic musical lineup,” said the festival's producer Mike Reed in a press statement. "Unlike other festivals, music is always at the forefront, so it’s great to step back and see how diverse and inclusive the music makers and listeners have become. We hopefully do our best to reflect that by simply staying true to our initial ideals."
The 2018 Pitchfork Music Festival will kick f on Friday, July 20 and wrap up Sunday, July 22 at Chicago's Union Park. Tickets are priced at $75 for a day pass and $175 for a three-day entry. There are special VIP passes for $375 that will also include "exclusive amenities."
