    According to a recent press release, the 2010 P4K festival’s lineup continues to grow, but not with any more musical acts. Taking a page from large-scale fests like Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, Pitchfork is adding 4 absolutely incredible comedians to their already stellar opening day.

    Confirmed are Hannibal Burress (SNL), Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show with John Stewart), Michael Showalter (Stella, Wet Hot American Summer, The Michael Showalter Showalter), and Eugene Mirman (Flight of the Conchords).

    The only problem I see is that Michael Showalter’s set conflicts with Broken Social Scene’s. These are both must-see acts, so choosing between the two will be quite difficult. You may just have to split your time between the stages.

    Pitchfork 2010 Festival will be held July 16-18 in Chicago’s Union Park. There are still a few tickets left for Friday, so go buy a ticket to experience Pitchfork’s first ever comedy stage!
