This July, Pitchfork Music Festival returns to Chicago for the 11th straight summer. Set for July 15-17 at the city’s Union Park, the fest will feature performances from artists the titular music site has championed over the years across myriad genres.

The full lineup was announced today (Feb. 19). The most prominent artists include Miguel, Brian Wilson (performing the Beach BoysPet Sounds), Carly Rae Jepsen, Sufjan Stevens, Beach House and FKA Twigs.

The Wilson set is part of an extensive 2016 tour, in which Brian Wilson will play Pet Sounds in its entirety to celebrate the classic album’s 50th birthday.

Pitchfork has revealed which day each artist will perform, although daily headliners and set times have not yet been announced. Will Stevens be able to perform a poignant, Instagram-begging rendition of "Chicago" as the sun sets over the city's skyline? We'll just have to wait and see.

Three-day passes and tickets for individual days are currently on sale.
