Pitchfork Fest 2009 lineup to include The Jesus Lizard, Built to Spill

Last week, promoters for Pitchfork Music Festival announced that the fest will take place this year from July 17 to 19 in Chicago's Union Park, with tickets on sale March 13.

According to the Sun-Times and the Tribune, the fest has now announced a portion of its lineup, which includes Built to Spill, Yo La Tengo and Chicago favorites The Jesus Lizard and Tortoise on July 17. The Jesus Lizard performance will mark the first time the reunited band has played in their hometown for 11 years.

The second day of the fest is set to feature The National, Pharoahe Monch and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, while Grizzly Bear, The Walkmen and The Vivian Girls will play Sunday.

This year, anyone who buys a ticket to the fest will be able to vote online for what songs they'd like to hear in the bands' set lists.
