The festival announced the headlining acts — R. Kelly, Bjork and Belle and Sebastian — in February and had been fleshing out the lineup in the weeks since.
The three-day fest in Chicago's Union Park stole some thunder from Lollapalooza, which kicked off its early bird ticket sale just hours before Pitchfork revealed its lineup news.
The March 25 announcement also drastically dims the prospects that Lollapalooza will pull out strong undercard acts when it finalizes its lineup in early April, now that Lolla-friendly bands like Solange and M.I.A. have been snapped up by the smaller fest.
For this year's fest, holiday-priced three day passes ($95) were put on sale before Christmas, and a layaway program is also in effect. Regular three-day and single day passes are currently on sale.
The Pitchfork Music Festival is July 19-21 in Union Park in Chicago.
