The lineup, announced Monday morning, also includes Alvvays, Perfume Genius, Weyes Blood, King Krule, Kelela, Grace Ives and 700 Bliss, ILLUMINATI HOTTIES and Soul Glo among the more than 40 acts taking the stage.

Pitchfork Music Festival also will host a specialty record fair along with vendor areas featuring a number of Chicago businesses and food selections.
