Pitchfork has already announced their 2013 headliners: R.Kelly, Bjork, and Belle and Sebastian. The three-day festival returns to Chicago’s Union Park Friday, July 19th thru Sunday the 21st celebrating a unique blend of music from around the globe.

We are excited to expand on the 2013 headliners with this initial lineup announcement as heard on The Big Beat with Marty Lennartz.

On Friday, in addition to Björk, the festival welcomes Joanna Newsom, Mac DeMarco and Foxygen. Saturday will see performances by The Breeders, Swans, Trail of Dead, Angel Olsen and Trash Talk, in addition to previously announced headliner Belle & Sebastian. And joining R. Kelly on Sunday will be Chairlift, TNGHT, Sky Ferreira, Tree, Killer Mike and El-P.
