UPDATE: 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival Tickets (Almost) Available

2011 Pitchfork Fest

It’s been fun announcing and exploring the Coachella and Sasquatch festival lineups. It’s kind of a tease, though, since we’re still stuck in winter, snow, ice and slush mode here in Chicago. But nonetheless, next week tickets for the 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival go on sale. Here’s the initial low-down.

Though they haven’t announced any lineup yet, A partial lineup was announced on March 4th. Check it out below.

We’re pretty expecting the festival to live up to its taste-making reputation and once again rock Union Park in Chicago.

Last year, we weren’t disappointed with our three day adventure or with Pitchfork’s headliners. It was also a great time to test out and experiment with the Tweeps Around 3D mobile app and chat with a concert fan about Rock For Kids.

And like you, we’re wondering who’ll be on the bill this year. We have a few guesses, but we’d like to hear yours too.

Of course, when it comes to the tickets, the press release conveniently reminded us that “last year they sold out in FIVE DAYS!”

So get ready, because single-day tickets ($45) and three-day passes ($110), will be available March 4th on the Pitchfork Festival website.

And if you create any fake line-up posters, have a Pitchfork concert story or 2011 lineup prediction to share, tell us all about in the comments!
