Attention Hipsters! Some Pitchfork Music Festival bands have been announced!

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of thousands of indie hipsters creaming themselves because the reunited Pavement are one of the headliners for the 2010 Pitchfork Music Festival, running from July 16th through the 18th.

Here’s a look at the lineup so far:

Friday
Modest Mouse

Saturday
LCD Soundsystem
Raekwon

Sunday
Pavement
St. Vincent
Lightning Bolt
Cass McCombs
Here We Go Magic
Sleigh Bells

Seems to be a pretty decent lineup so far. I can’t really get into some of the Sunday bands though, but that will probably change as I listen to them a little more. Pavement and Providence’s own Lightning Bolt especially (if you have never seem them live, at a warehouse show no less, you are missing an amazing experience!), are not to be missed. I’m kind of jealous that LCD Soundsystem are playing since I was really hoping to catch him at Lollpalooza this year. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it to Pitchfork due to it being too close to Lollapalooza, which is already booked and me having, as the one and only Wally Pleasant calls…a stupid day job.

Tickets are $40 for 1 day or $90 for the whole weekend, not bad at all!

More to come as they announce the rest of the lineup! Stay tuned!
