Also, although I plan on thoroughly researching every act in this lineup, I'm pretty much making this entire trip based on LCD Soundsystem (never seen them), A Tribe Called Quest (never seen them), Vince Staples (never seen him), and Nicolas Jaar (never seen him as a solo act).
With that in mind, any recommendations for stuff that I should veer towards first while researching this lineup?
Non-P4K but Chicago related. Xenia Rubinos Is playing Millennium Park on Thursday before the fest. Those shows are free, correct? In a perfect world, I could see her and make it to a pre-show (if anything is announced).
Bummer, I'm guessing they'd be out for P4K since they're playing a few weeks later. Outside of them and The Avalanches, there's not much else on the lineup that I won't be seeing elsewhere this year, so not sure how likely it is I'll attend.

Flights officially booked. Showing up on Wednesday night because my wife found out Charles Bradley is playing a free show (on Thursday) at House of Vans. No clue if we would make it in to that or not. Super stoked to be returning to Chicago this summer though.

Figure this is the best place to mention:
I didn't realize until last night that Spank Rock was the tour MC for Avalanches. Love that dude. Overall the show was good. The musicianship wasn't the strongest but the songs themselves carried. I was a little low since it was Monday night and I had an emotional hangover from seeing Iron Maiden, but would be a real fun festival set or after show.
