Those anxious for a partial Pitchfork Music Festival lineup readily watched paint dry this morning, but the organizers also shared that info via more conventional methods, i.e., a press release. As we previously reported, Tame Impala is headlining, with Raphael Saadiq and Japandroids also set to perform during the three-day festival. But now we know the rest of the first-wave performers, including Julien Baker and homegrown acts like Melkbelly and Ravyn Lenae.
