With exactly three months to go between now and the festivities, the 2009 Pitchfork Music Festival — to be held in Chicago’s Union Park Friday, July 17 through Sunday, July 19 — is pleased to be announcing even more stellar acts performing at this year’s event. Saturday will see performances by Yeasayer, Plants and Animals, and Disappears, and on Sunday, the festival will be adding Blitzen Trapper, Mew, Japandroids, and Women to the increasingly irresistible lineup.
Remember, ticket buyers can go online and "Write the Night" by voting for the set list of their dreams for the bands performing on Friday night. The ballot boxes are open until June 12. Those who have already purchased a ticket but have yet to vote should be sure to check their purchase confirmation email for a link to the polls. Those who have not purchased tickets yet should visit the official festival website — http://www.
