Pitchfork Music Festival announces 2008 dates and a partial lineup

Looks like the folks in Animal Collective don't hold grudges against media outlets that give them negative reviews--they're at the top of an early partial list of performers at the Pitchfork Music Festival, which returns July 18-20. The rest of the lineup combines head-slappingly obvious choices (Vampire Weekend, No Age) with left-field radness (Extra Golden, Spiritualized) in the special way that's the Pitchfork fest's trademark.

From the press release:

The first acts to be announced for the 2008 Pitchfork Music Festival include:The Pitchfork Music Festival and All Tomorrow's Parties present "Don't Look Back" featuring PUBLIC ENEMY performing "It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back"
ANIMAL COLLECTIVE
SPIRITUALIZED
!!!
M. WARD
BORIS
VAMPIRE WEEKEND
DIZZEE RASCAL
NO AGE
ATLAS SOUND
FLEET FOXES
EXTRA GOLDEN
EL GUINCHO
plus more than two dozen others TBA
Tickets will be available via pitchforkmusicfestival.com beginning Wednesday, March 12 at noon Central. Tickets are $30 per day, with a limited number of two- and three-day passes priced at $50 and $65 respectively.

I'm really looking forward to watching human self-parody Flava Flav trying to reproduce the revolutionary It Takes a Nation and seeing how much it makes me die inside.
