The Pitchfork Music Festival will return to Chicago this Fall, with a female-powered line-up of headliners including St. Vincent, Erykah Badu, and Phoebe Bridgers.

The festival will take place September 10th through 12th at Union Park in Chicago. Bridgers will headline the first day of the festival, on September 10, with additional performances by Big Thief, Animal Collective, Yaeji, Black Midi, Kelly Lee Owens, Hop Along, and Dogleg. Indie aughts mainstay Fiery Furnaces are also slated to play their first show in a decade.

Then St. Vincent will headline Day two on September 11, joined by Angel Olsen, Kim Gordon, Ty Segall and Freedom Band, Waxahatchee, Jay Electronica, Jamila Woods, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Bartees Strange, and Faye Webster.

This will mark the first time audiences will get a live taste of Vincent’s new album, Daddy’s Home – dropped last Friday – outside of her recent SNL performance.

Erykah Badu will close out the festival on September 12, along with Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Danny Brown, Cat Power, Caroline Polachek, Yves Tumor, the Weather Station, Andy Shauf, and more.

Tickets are on sale now, with three-day passes for $195 while single-day passes are $90. If the festival is rescheduled or postponed due to Covid-19, ticket buyers will be able to either keep their passes or request a refund.

The pandemic prevented the 15th anniversary edition of the festival and other large-scale Chicago events from being held in person last year. Pitchfork Music Festival organizers have announced they will closely follow Chicago’s Covid-19 protocol and keep attendees updated as federal, state, and local regulations change.

For entry this year, festivalgoers 12 years and up will be required to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative PCR test within the past 24 hours for each day they attend.
