Run the Jewels to Headline This Year’s Pygmalion Music Festival

Pygmalion Flyer 2015 (FINAL)The Pygmalion Music Festival announced Tuesday morning that Run the Jewels will headline this year’s festival.

The hip-hop duo was the final piece of the lineup to be announced. Pygmalion had listed “???” as the main headliner since the initial lineup was announced in early May.

You can find tickets to this year’s festival here.

According to Pygmalion founder Seth Fein, the festival was unable to announce Run the Jewels as its 2015 headliner due to their performance at this weekend’s Pitchfork Music Festival; however, once Pitchfork sold out the Champaign-Urbana festival was then able to make the announcement that the Killer Mike and EL-P collaboration would headline the music portion of the fest.

The full schedule for this year’s Pygmalion won’t be released until September, but the days for the headliners are set:

Thursday
