Tickets for Pitchfork are currently on sale for $75/day or $175 for a 3-day pass. A layaway option is currently available and allows for attendees to pay the $175 fee over 3-installments. However it's only available until March 1st so you have to act fast to take advantage of it.

More artists are expected to be announced soon.
