Pygmalion 2012 Initial Lineup 2012: Grizzly Bear and Dinosaur Jr.


The always excellent Pygmalion Music Festival released the first batch of artists for their annual indie show. Dinosaur Jr., Grizzly Bear, Cloud Nothings, and Tennis will headline the September 27-29, 2012, festival held in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. More acts will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

Pygmalion runs similar to a SXSW type of festival with artists playing in venues around town. Local, regional, and national acts will all be in the mix — a crowd that has grown substantially since the first Pygmalion back in 2005.
