Pitchfork Festival has revealed the first wave of its 2024 line-up

London indie-heads, time to get very, very excited. Pitchfork Festival London has revealed the first wave of acts for its 2024 edition – and, as always, it’s set to be a feast for every kind of music listener.

This year will mark Pitchfork London’s fourth edition and, as before, it’ll be spread over several venues throughout the city. This year’s fest will take place on November 5-10.

Highlights from the festival’s first wave include a Roundhouse bill topped by Pakistani singer and composer Arooj Aftab, another Roundhouse night headlined by hip-hop artist Tierra Whack, a showcase at Troxy entirely curated by Londoner CASISDEAD and Sega Bodega heading up a club event at Outernet’s HERE.

Also on the bill are south London post-punks Shame, trance-y electroclash duo Snow Strippers, Guatemalan cellist Mabe Fritti, pop musician Empress Of and poet Kae Tempest, plus a night of cutting-edge hip-hop at Fabric featuring billy woods, Moor Mother, ELUCID and Goya Gumbani. 

And that certainly isn’t all. Here’s a full poster with the many, many artists revealed in Pitchfork 2024’s first wave.
