Kendrick Lamar at Lollapalooza last year
Well, we've been waiting.

Today the Pitchfork Music Festival (7/18-7/20) announced its 2014 lineup. It was going to prove difficult to top the star power of last year's headliners (Bjork, Belle & Sebastian, R. Kelly), but the Union Park festival tried all the same. And that's pretty admirable. This year is heavy on hip-hop and cozy indie rock (and noticeably light on punk and metal), with Beck, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Kendrick Lamar owning the three top spots. Check out the almost-complete lineup below—a few stragglers might still be added—with links to our past coverage included.

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks
Giorgio Moroder
Sun Kil Moon
Factory Floor
Death Grips
The Haxan Cloak

And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that the Reader's very own Gossip Wolf successfully predicted six of the Pitchfork guests: Deafheaven, Perfect Pussy, Speedy Ortiz, Sun Kil Moon, Kelela, and Mutual Benefit. Six of 44. Hey, could've been a lot worse.
