UPDATE: The festival has announced its official 2015 lineup here.
Later this morning, the Pygmalion Festival will announce Purity Ring, tUnE-yArDs, Zola Jesus, Strand of Oaks, K. Flay, Cathedrals, and more as a part of its 2015 lineup.
Other likely artists on the 2015 bill include Sylvan Esso, Whitey Morgan and the 78’s, Truly, and Ryley Walker. The festival is still set to announce two major headliners to accompany the influential British shoegaze band Ride, who was announced yesterday as one of the headlining acts.
Computer scientist Stephen Wolfram and gaming entrepreneur Roger Dickey will headline the festival’s first-ever tech portion. The five-day event will also feature author and music journalist Jessica Hopper, writer Brian Evenson, and more as part of its Lit Fest this year.
The festival began to announce the lineup late last night by writing it out on the chalkboard across from Mike N Molly’s in downtown Champaign, but a brief spat of rain began to wash away the writing a little after midnight:
Luckily, no one will have to wait long for the official announcement via the Pygmalion team, as they’re planning on revealing the lineup (without water marks) later this morning. The festival held its “blind sale” Monday morning, selling out of passes well before noon. The remaining festival passes and single event tickets will go on sale this Friday (May 8) at 10 a.m. on the festival’s website.
Full festival passes will be $110, while a music festival pass will cost $85, and a tech festival pass will cost $50. Student tech festival passes will be free with a valid I.D.
