HAIM (in one of its few 2019 scheduled performances), The Isley Brothers (celebrating 60 years of music making) and Swedish pop icon Robyn are the headliners for Pitchfork Music Festival, it was announced Wednesday. The 14th annual music extravaganza will take place in Union Park July 19-21, in the West Loop.

The news was announced via press release and social media — no painting of a Chicago neighborhood mural as in years past, with band names revealed in real time as the work of art progressed.

Also slated for this year’s festival are Chicago legend Mavis Staples, Stereolab (in its first North American show in a decade), MIKE, Great Black Music Ensemble, Pusha-T, Kurt Vile, Lala Lala, Cate Le Bon, Chai, Ric Wilson and Dreezy, and more, in what is billed as an eclectic mix of classic and cutting-edge.

“It’s exciting that it features such an inclusive lineup,” said Pitchfork editor-in-chief Puja Patel via statement. “More than half the artists performing are women, including modern pioneers of indie rock and hip-hop, legends of soul and R&B … For a national festival that’s so important to a larger music community, the scope of this year’s booking feels especially meaningful.”

Festival tickets — single-day passes for $75, and three-day passes for $175 — are now on sale at pitchforkmusicfestival.com/tickets. Pitchfork Plus “upgrade” passes — $160 and $375 — are also available and include premium food vendors and private specialty bars, air-conditioned bathrooms, shaded seating and dining areas, expedited entry to the festival, re-entry privileges, a welcome bag with festival essentials, storage lockers and more. All ticket prices will go up after May 31.
