With Pitchfork Music Festival's three stages and three days of music, it is tempting to do the impossible, try and see every act's full set. So our gratefulweb team who will be on-site this weekend has come up with, in no particular order, a list of must-sees to check out. 

It’s hard to figure out what's good when so much new material is coming at you. For the cerebral prestige partying crew, there is no room in the summer to simply spend money on bands that don’t matter.  With Pitchfork Music Festival right around the corner, let’s have some fun. Let’s play three truths and a lie. Can you guess which of these four fun facts are NOT true?

Two-person bands can make a lot of noise.  Examples include Twenty One Pilots, the Black Keys, Black Pistol Fire, and Matt and Kim.  And the Japandroids, a Canadian two-man band who are one of the headliners of the Pitchfork Music Festiva on Sunday, July 22nd at 7:45 p.m.

Indie-Rock Darling Courtney Barnett will be one of the Friday night headliners at the Pitchfork Music Festival on July 20th.  The 30 year old Australian singer-songwriter quickly sold out last month's concert at the Chicago Cultural Center, so her fans who were disappointed because they were not able to attend that show will have the opportunity to see the singer live at Pitchfork.  Barnett is touring behind her second full length solo album, Tell Me How You

In its 13th years, Pitchfork Music Festival returns to Union Park, Chicago for another three days of great music July 20th-22nd.

With three stages and 40-plus acts scheduled, this festival offers attendees a full selection of emerging and well-known favorites to check out.

In its 12th year, Pitchfork Music Festival headlines with LCD Soundsystem (Friday), A Tribe Called Quest (Saturday) closing with Solange (Sunday). Featuring three stages, the line-up of 40 plus bands includes fan favorites George Clinton & Parlament Funkadelic, The Feelies, P.J. Harvey, Francis and the Lights and Jamila Woods. This Independently run festival highlights some of the best in new and emerging music.
