First acts announced for Pitchfork Paris 2018

The National, Jungle and Run The Jewels played last year

Fever Ray, Blood Orange, Bon Iver and Mac DeMarco have been announced as the first acts for this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival Paris.

Tickets for the festival, which will take place at the Grande Halle De La Villette on November 1-3 are on sale now. You can purchase tickets here. More acts will be announced in the coming weeks.

In addition to the main festival, there will be two nights of ‘Avant Garde’ in the Bastille area of the city on October 30-31 – which will “showcase the best of the international independent music scene” in small venues and clubs.


Last year’s Pitchfork Paris saw the likes of The National, Jungle and Run The Jewels playing.

Meanwhile, Tame Impala were recently announced as a headliner at this year’s Pitchfork Festival in Chicago.

The festival, which will take place between July 20-22, will also see headline performances from Fleet Foxes and Lauryn Hill.

Elsewhere on the bill, Courtney Barnett and Earl Sweatshirt will perform on the Friday (July 20), while The War On Drugs and Blood Orange will grace Pitchfork Festival on the Saturday (July 21).

The final day, which Hill will headline, will also see slots from the likes of Chaka Khan, (Sandy) Alex G and DRAM.


Tame Impala’s sole UK touring date in 2018 – so far – will be at Citadel Festival in London. You check out the rest of the line-up for that festival here.
