TVD Ticket Giveaway: Pitchfork Music Festival, 7/13-7/15

Pitchfork Music Festival is just around the corner and eMusic has given us a pair of tickets to give to one of our readers.

    Clams Casino, Flying Lotus, A$AP Rocky, hands down.

  • srbterp

    dirty projectors!! they are so fun and unique

  • dp

    Japandroids!!!  Celebration Rock is the best freewheeling rock album of 2012 so far, and they’re one of the few duos that can easily hold their own on a festival stage. 

  • darkharbourzz

    Japandroids, easily.

  • YoPendleton

    Personally I’m hoping for a chance to catch any of the HipHop acts this year, most notably Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q and A$AP Rocky. I hope people understand that those three are playing a large part in the current production of “New School HipHop” and are likely to around and relevant for the foreseeable future. One can only hope their live shows are as interesting as their recorded works.

  • Nicole

    Oh man, what an amazing lineup! Fiest, Chromatics, Atlas Sound, The Field…. I must say though, Nicolas Jaar is who I’m most looking forward since I’ve never had a chance to catch his amazingness live! ([email protected])

  • Maeve McDermott

    Atlas Sound. Because I’m an enormous Bradford Cox fan and I’m scared to death he’s going to let his unstable brilliance get the most of himself and take his own life. So please let me see one of my favorite artists while he’s still around and making fantastic, essential music. 

  • becky119

    Sleigh Bells is who I’m hoping to see this weekend

  • RoboAnt

    Definitely Grimes, especially since she is headlining one of the stages. 

  • KennyMeridian

    I’d kill to see Iceage because they’re never in the states. Them, Danny Brown, and Purity Ring!

    Japandroids or Dirty Projectors. Both have killer new records.

  • Angie

    Definitely Japandroids! “Celebration Rock” is the album of the summer.

  • Thepoet9381

    I really want to see A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, and Araabmuzik. I saw Araabmuzik last year, and he was absolutely amazing. A$AP Rocky is without a doubt my favorite rapper currently. I can’t stop listening to the song “Brand New” ft Schoolboy Q, and would love to see A$AP Rocky and Schoolboy Q preform it.
