  • Chance the Rapper is one of the headliners of this year's Pitchfork Music Festival.

Or most of it at least (there's sure to be a straggler or two). At first glance, one of the best aspects of this year's lineup is the heavy local influence. Wilco and Chance the Rapper are headliners—the reunited Sleater-Kinney are filling the Saturday headlining slot—with Vic Mensa, Jimmy Whispers, and Ryley Walker also being given the opportunity to get weird. There are plenty of repeats from years past (Run the Jewels, Parquet Courts, Kurt Vile, et cetera), and plenty of newbies worthy of your attention (Single Mothers, Viet Cong, Natalie Prass, et cetera). Also if you're looking for anything heavy, please move along and find tickets to Maryland Deathfest or something. As it stands right at this moment, the whole damn lineup is below with plenty and plenty of links to old Reader coverage, courtesy of the man Leor Galil, who was tasked with digging through our archives. So, what do you think? —Kevin Warwick
