Pitchfork Music Festival: R. Kelly, Bjork, Belle & Sebastian to Headline
This year's Pitchfork Music Festival has secured its headliners, with an R&B veteran, a quirky Icelander and a baroque pop band set to take the stage at Chicago's Union Park July 19-21, organizers announced today.
R. Kelly, Bjork and Belle and Sebastian will lead the fest, while a full lineup will be announced later. Tickets are on sale now, with three-day passes going for $120.
Last year's main draws at the fest -- which a Billboard editor covered with his dad -- included Vampire Weekend, A$AP Rocky, Feist, Sleigh Bells, Kendrick Lamar and Grimes. Pitchfork fest has been held at Chicago's Union Park since the festival launched in 2006.
Bjork will take the stage following a lengthy trek in support of her 2011 album "Biophilia," which included multi-day residencies in select cities around the globe. Kelly, meanwhile, released his "Write Me Back" studio album last year, while Belle & Sebastian's most recent LP, "Belle and Sebastian Write About Love," was released in 2010.
