A few schedule adjustments have been made following the lineup change.
Pitchfork just announced Earl Sweatshirt's gig cancellation. Their festival is due to begin in a matter of days as it kicks off this Friday, July 20th and closes on Sunday. Thankfully, Tierra Whack was available to fill the gap in the last minute switch up. The female MC is set to perform in Earl's previous timeslot of 4:15 on the Green stage. As a result, a couple of other schedule changes were made for Friday: Syd will now be hitting the Green Stage at 6:15, and Saba goes on the Red Stage at 5:15.
There is no doubt that Tierra Whack is a rising star. Her career is snowballing, especially after receiving praise from her peers for Whack World. The artist released an audiovisual experience of her debut album's medley, asserting herself in a lane of her own. She also got to kick it with one of her idols a couple of days ago when she opened for Ms. Lauryn Hill in her hometown city of Philadelphia last weekend.
Ms. Lauryn Hill, Tame Impala, and Fleet Foxes are still headlining this year's edition of Pitchfork Music Festival. Other notable acts include Moses Sumney, Kelela, DRAM and Chaka Khan. View the updated lineup here.
