It Takes A Nation of Hipsters: Public Enemy, Vampire Weekend, No Age and More For Pitchfork Music Festival


The kids at hipster site Pitchfork announced the starter lineup for their annual music festival, to take place July 18-20 in Chicago's Union Park. In keeping with their "Don't Look Back" series, the festival will kick off on the first night with Public Enemy performing their seminal hit, It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back. Other acts over the three days include LA noise duo, No Age, Deerhunter side-project Atlas Sound, New York's Animal Collective, and the most awesome psych-metal band around, Boris.
