Win Full Passes to the Pitchfork Music Festival ’09


Regardless of how you feel about the reviews on its parent site, since launching in 2006, Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival has played host to some of the most exciting moments in indie rock-related summer goodness: from an exceedingly rare performance by Brazilian tropicalia masters Os Mutantes at the first fest to Sonic Youth‘s blissed-out performance of Daydream Nation in 2007 to Cut Copy‘s rave-inducing set (which managed to turn the garbage-strewn Union Park into a throbbing mass of unabashed, sweat-soaked dancers) just last year.

Currently, only very limited quantities of tickets remain for Friday’s night show — all other tickets for the three-day blowout are sold out. But don’t fret: Flavorpill has three full-festival P4K passes to give away for the nearly-sold out fest.

Here’s the deal: Explain which artist you think will give this year’s greatest performance — Yo La Tengo? Flaming Lips? A meltdown-free Wavves? — and publish your response as a comment by midnight on Wednesday. Make sure to leave a valid email address so we have a direct way to contact you.

Although the contest is open to all Flavorpill readers, please note that the festival — and ticket pickup — is in Chicago. Good luck!
