Grizzly Bear’s North American tour will start at Pygmalion Music Festival on September 27th. The indie rock supergroup has been teasing fans with a new album on Twitter all year! For now, this should feed fans itching for their new material a little reassurance–it’s happening! (Schweet!).The festival, now in its eighth year, will take place in Champaign-Urbana from September 27th-29th.
Grizzly Bear will be joined as headliners by Dinosaur Jr., who recently finished touring their classic album, Bug. (Read our interview with Lou Barlow of Dinosaur Jr). More notables will be added over the coming months, but here’s the rest of the list Cloud Nothings, Tennis, Hospitality, Willis Earl Beal, Frankie Rose, Big Freedia and The Divas, Lord Huron, Julia Holter, Lotus Plaza, Craft Spells, Owen, Oh No Oh My, Zeus, and more.
