I will be on site and behind the scenes at the 2010 Pitchfork Music Festival at the beautiful and quaint Union Park in Chicago, Illinois June 16-18. Check back here or on our Facebook page for exclusive photos and, hopefully (keep those fingers crossed), announcements for interview air times as well as other surprises!!!
Check out this enormous line up! So many heavy-hitters and up-and-comers. These are some XDU's favorite artists, all in one place.
Hope to see you there!
