Dance-rock luminaries LCD Soundsystem will headline Pitchfork Music Festival 2017 along with hip-hop pioneers A Tribe Called Quest and R&B auteur Solange, the festival announced today. The 12th annual edition of the festival will take place from July 14–16 in Chicago's Union Park.

Pitchfork will also partner with Solange's label and platform Saint Heron to present a special event series featuring artists talks, poetry readings, jazz performances, film screenings, and an installation of contemporary art. These specially-curated events will take place in venues across Chicago from July 13–16.

The headliners were announced by way of a two-hour Facebook live stream earlier today, which showed Chicago-based artist Shelby Rodeffer painting an advertisement for the festival featuring the artists' names on a brick wall.

Tickets for the festival are available on TicketFly.
