I'd highly recommend getting yourself to Chicago between the 18th and 20th of July for:
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, !!!, Vampire Weekend, Dizzee Rascal, No Age, Atlas Sound, Fleet Foxes
Spiritualized, M. Ward, Boris, Extra Golden, El Guincho
and some of the most fun you'll ever have at a festival. Hipster basketball, anyone? and the three days will cost you less than $70. genius.
