  • Shelby Rodeffer begins a long day of painting band names on the side of Violet Hour.

Pitchfork Music Festival unveiled a number of the performers for its annual three-day bonanza this morning; the 13th iteration runs July 20-22, once again at Union Park.

Chicago artist Shelby Rodeffer, executing artwork by illustrator Camilo Medina, revealed the names of the performers by painting them on a wall outside Wicker Park hot spot the Violet Hour. That meant the only way to find out who will be playing was by literally watching paint dry — which we did.

We've compiled the list (along with Reader intern Rachel Yang's best tweets from the scene) below; scroll down for the daily schedule and ticket information. Added bonus: we've included links to past Reader features, show previews, and reviews.
