Pitchfork Festival 2010 - lineup, roll call, miscellaneous elitism



The lineup was filled out yesterday, so I figured it was about time a proper thread was created for P4k2k10.

Friday:

Modest Mouse
Broken Social Scene
Robyn
Liars
El-P
The Tallest Man On Earth
Sharon Van Etten

Saturday:

LCD Soundsystem
Panda Bear
Wolf Parade
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Raekwon
Titus Andronicus
Why?
Delorean
Real Estate
Bear in Heaven
Free Energy
The Smith Westerns
Dâm-Funk
Kurt Vile
Freddie Gibbs
jj
Netherfriends

Sunday:

Pavement
Big Boi
Major Lazer
St. Vincent
Lightning Bolt
Beach House
Girls
Sleigh Bells
Neon Indian
Cass McCombs
Here We Go Magic
Surfer Blood
Local Natives
Washed Out
Best Coast
CAVE
Allá

Compared to last year, consider me unimpressed. The mid-range acts are pretty strong, a lot of bands I'm curious about (probably about 17 total, spread out over three days, which isn't anything special, but not a bad average overall), but the headliners are really disappointing, especially on Sunday, which clearly bet all its money on the Pavement stallion. On top of that, no Hold Steady? They're not playing Lolla or any other Chicago dates, there's no reason why they couldn't be secured.

Anyway, enough bitching from me. Who's excited? Who's headed out there July 16-18? I'll be going Friday, if at all; $40 is a small price to pay for what essentially amounts to a Modest Mouse/Broken Social Scene double billing for me, plus an opportunity to discover a couple of great new acts.

Guess it goes without saying that I'll probably be there on Friday, though it's tough with Tom Petty being the next day.


I didn't realize Dalton was going to be there though!

I'll be there Sunday, as seeing Pavement is enough. But, yes, the lineup isn't the greatest. Ah well, it'll be fun to get down to Chicago again for a summertime concert.

If I could switch a couple acts over to Sunday, they'd be BSS (obviously) and Freddie Gibbs. I'm fairly pissed he's playing Saturday instead, because I'd absolutely love to see him.

Looking forward to Cave, Lightning Bolt, and Pavement, on Sunday. Very, very, very, very, very, very glad that I didn't spring for a 3-day pass. Saturday looks ghastly. Raekwon's my boy, but he sucks ass live.

I haven't heard Cave before, but looking over some of their work, I have a feeling I'd like. Gonna check 'em out now. I'm looking forward to seeing Beach House again, if I have the chance (maybe my issues with their drum machines have been resolved...or maybe not). And, Girls would be fun, I think, as well as Washed Out. I'll probably see Cass McCombs too, since he's sort of got the same name as me and all.

Guess I'm the only one who thinks the entire lineup is stacked.

I think Friday and Saturday are great, but I really feel like they based everything for Sunday on ZOMG Pavement.

Washed Out, Local Natives, Girls, Beach House, and St. Fucking Vinny? Nah.

Completely glossed over that. Woops. Them too, for sure.

It's more like I'm not "OMFG, I need to see them!" about anyone on Sunday except for Pavement. Other than that, the rest of the lineup are bands that I'm sure I'll enjoy seeing, but weren't making me jump out of my seat with excitement or anything. Worth the price of the trip overall though? Abso-fucking-lutely.

Perhaps the weakest lineup since the first...the first might have been better because I don't remember it having as many relative nobodies.

I'd want to see:

Friday:

Modest Mouse
Broken Social Scene
Liars
The Tallest Man On Earth

Saturday:

LCD Soundsystem
Panda Bear
Wolf Parade

Sunday:

Pavement
Beach House
Neon Indian
Cass McCombs
Local Natives
Washed Out
Best Coast

Definitely would grab Sunday tickets if I lived near Chicago. Saturday would be worth paying just to see the first three acts and then leave.

They went with new indie bands, particularly the types that Pitchfork themselves have been hyping, instead of the more mainstreamy appeal type of older bands. I don't know, I don't follow past years lineups because I'm never going, but it seems exactly like the type of festival Pitchfork would throw.

It's funny, on another forum I visit, people are absolutely freaking out (in excitement) about bands no one has even mentioned in this thread yet.
