The Pitchfork Music Festival has announced the lineup for its 2024 event, which takes place from Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21 at Chicago’s Union Park. The annual festival, which began in 2006, will feature a wide variety of acts from various genres over the course of its three-day span, with Black Pumas, Jamie XX, Alanis Morissette designated as the respective headliners for those dates.

It’s arguable that more eyes are on the festival than ever this year, as it’s the first such event to take place since the decision by Conde Nast to integrate Pitchfork into GQ. That shift in the site doesn’t seem to have affected the general tenor of the acts included in the lineup, however, as they’re still very much all over the place, offering a strong mix of indie, mainstream, current, and a few old-school artists for good measure.

Carly Rae Jepsen will play on the second day of the Pitchfork Music Festival.

Of course, the term "old school" is decidedly relative, but it's fair to say that, no matter what your definition of the phrase may be, hip-hop legend Grandmaster Flash - who will be holding court on Sunday the 21st - definitely qualifies, whereas one might reasonably argue that the aforementioned Ms. Morissette falls as easily into that category as she does "mainstream," but either way, there's little doubt that she'll have a sizable audience singing along to each and every track from Jagged Little Pill that finds its way into her set list.

Some of the other notable names in the mix: Carly Rae Jepsen, Jessie Ware, De La Soul, Unwound, Bratmobile, MUNA, and Les Savy Fav.
