As you know, previously announced 2009 Pitchfork Music Festival artists include the Flaming Lips, the National, Grizzly Bear, M83, the Walkmen, Yeasayer, Pharoahe Monch, and many more.
Also, on Friday, July 17, we'll launch the "Write the Night: Set Lists by Request" series, in which four bands will all play fan-selected set lists. Here's how it works: You, the audience, vote on which songs all four bands-- Built to Spill, the Jesus Lizard, Yo La Tengo, and Tortoise-- will play. When you buy your ticket, you'll get a confirmation email. That confirmation email will include a link to a page where you can vote on which songs from each band you want to hear. The bands will tailor their set lists accordingly. (Also worth mentioning: This will be the Jesus Lizard's first American show in a decade.) Voting ends June 12.
Plus: There are still many more bands to come.
Tickets for the 2009 Pitchfork Music Festival are on sale now.
