Pitchfork Music Festival Lineup 2017

It’s good, but I still think Capitol Hill Block Party knocked it out of the park for me this week!

Pitchfork 2016

This lineup poster is really deceiving because Miguel and Sufjan Stevens are near the bottom when they should clearly be a little closer to the top. Turns out, it’s just in alphabetical order. Way to step outside of the box this year and do what no other music festival lineups ever do.

OutKast to Tour 40+ Music Festivals

Coachella confirmed last week that OutKast would be reuniting for the major music festival, but don’t worry if you didn’t snag your tickets because you’ll be able to catch OutKast at 40 other music festivals this year. We just know that one of them will be Sasquatch or Bumbershoot or BOTH! The special music festival tour is to “to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their unique and influential sound”.

Specific dates have yet to be released, but it’s only a matter of time before all of our favorite music festivals begin unveiling their lineups. If your city doesn’t have a major music festival in it, it’s likely that they will have some random cities sprinkled in as well.

I saw Big Boi at Bumbershoot in 2011 and all I was hoping for was Andre 3000 to come out and surprise everyone on stage. That never happened, unfortunately, but now I know it’s really not too late!

SXSW Stream: Jay-Z

On March 12th, Jay-Z will stream his entire performance at SXSW on the internet. The digital age is great, isn’t it? Since the rapper is performing in an American Express sponsored show,

Pitchfork reports that attendees of the festival who have both American Express cards and Interactive badges can gain access to the concert by syncing their Twitter account with their cards.

I think this still means that everyone can stream the show if they want. The stream will be available here.

Annual Music Roundup Pt. 1

Fleet Foxes | pic cred. RCRD LBL

It’s almost my favorite time of the year! Well, besides Christmas of course. I am very much looking forward to looking back on my entire 2011 and seeing Yow Yow’s annual recap, posting my 50 favorite songs, sharing with you recap posts from my favorite blogs and getting a closer look at what is to come in 2012. It’s only December 12th, but it has already started. NPR, Urban Outfitters and Seattle’s very own Sub Pop have posted their favorite albums and artists for the year so here they are!

See if your favorites made the cut! If they did, you’re probably right on point. If they didn’t…where have you been all year?

Updated:

Don’t worry my list will be coming shortly, I’m just going to let my music favorites marinate a little bit longer.

On April 2nd, Pitchfork will be live streaming LCD Soundsystem’s last show ever from Madison Square Garden. Since this is the grand finale and many of their fans will not be present, Pitchfork is giving everyone the opportunity to watch the show that is about to go down in music history.
