Pitchfork is celebrating 15 years of its annual music festival, and the star-studded lineup was revealed on Tuesday (Feb. 18).

The lineup also includes the Fiery Furnaces, who will be playing their first show in 10 years, Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, Twin Peaks, Big Thief, Kim Gordon, Phoebe Bridgers and more.

Additionally, during the week leading up to the festival, there will be a number of events commemorating the 15th anniversary to be announced soon.

"For the 15th anniversary of Pitchfork Music Festival, we’re excited to showcase musicians who have been formative to our readers and pivotal to their respective communities,” said Pitchfork's editor-in-chief Puja Patel. “It’s in Pitchfork’s DNA to seek out rising talent and the best new music out there, and this year’s lineup exemplifies that across all three days. We always hope that fans will come to see their favorite band and leave the weekend having found a new one as well.”

Pitchfork Music Festival will take place July 17 - 19, with tickets on sale here. Currently, three-day passes are $185 and single-day passes are $75. The Pitchfork PLUS upgrade, including a range of exclusive amenities, is $385 for a three-day pass and $160 for a single-day pass. Payment plans will be available for all tickets over $100.
