The Pitchfork Music Festival has announced its 2016 lineup. Intriguingly, this year the fest hasn’t specified headliners but is presenting its list of performers in alphabetical order. If I had to guess, I’d say Broken Social Scene is Friday’s headliner, Saturday is topped off by either Sufjan Stevens or Brian Wilson, and either Miguel or Jeremih is closing out Sunday night. Other intriguing inclusions: Carly Rae Jepsen! FKA twigs! Anderson .Paak! Beach House! Blood Orange! Super Furry Animals! The Hotelier! Neon Indian! Jenny Hval! Kamasi Washington! Here’s the daily breakdown from a press release:
Friday will see performances by Beach House, Broken Social Scene, Carly Rae Jepsen, Girl Band, Julia Holter, Mick Jenkins, Moses Sumney, The Range, Shamir, Twin Peaks, and Whitney.
Saturday features ANDERSON .Paak & the Free Nationals, BJ The Chicago Kid, Blood Orange, Brian Wilson performing Pet Sounds, Car Seat Headrest, Circuit des Yeux, Digable Planets, Holly Herndon, Jenny Hval, Kevin Morby, Martin Courtney, Oneman, Royal Headache, Savages, Sufjan Stevens, and Super Furry Animals
