Anyone planning on doing the Pitchfork Festival thang who doesn’t have tickets should act fast. Friday tix and both flavors of multiday passes are already sold out, and festival organizers say that as of right now single-day tickets for Saturday and Sunday are only available in extremely limited quantities.
