The rumor-mongerers are in full out monger mode over this (via Daily Swarm), as the word on the street is Pavement just may be the headliners for this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival. Until it’s announced by Pitchfork themselves, and we have a firmer date than sometime in July, we’ll have to file this one as rumor and not fact, but it sure does make you go hmm….

UPDATE: A Representative from the Pitchfork Music Festival has made it clear that they are still working on many of the important decisions involving the 2010 Pitchfork Music Festival, including line-ups, ticket prices, and on-sale date. In other words, any headlining rumors, like the one linked above, should be considered pure speculation. According to my source, it’s simply too premature to release any of these specifics. They will confirm, however, that the proposed dates for this year’s festival are July 16th through the 18th.
