The Parisian branch of Pitchfork Festival has, this morning, announced more acts to fill their line-up. Sitting alongside the likes of Disclosure, The Knife, Junip, Panda Bear, and Omar Souleyman are a bunch of the new and the old. Older favourite Pitchfork favourites such as Ariel Pink, A-Trak, and Youth Lagoon, join the new (and much hyped) in the form of Empress Of, Majical Cloudz, and the fantastic Savages in the latest announcement.

The festival, which runs from 31st October to 2nd November this year, is set over two stages in the Grande Halle de la Villette, a former abattoir which was transformed into a cultural centre. As part of what was known by butchers as la Cité du Sang ("The City of Blood"), the abattoir district of Paris ceased all slaughterhouse operations in 1974. The slaughterhouse/market became a monument historique until in 1982 President François Mitterand included La Villette, and subsequently the Grande Halle de la Villette, in his Les Grands Projets legislation which sought to create more modern monuments to revitalise Paris (and led to the creation of well-known Parisian sights such as the Louvre Pyramid and La Grande Arche de la Défense.

With single day tickets available to the event as well as a few three day passes still available, why not go see a bunch of great bands in one of the major cultural hubs of Paris? Head here for more information.
