The second cluster of names have been announced for Pitchfork Paris 2019, featuring new additions AURORA, CHAI, Squid, and more.

Zola, Primal Scream, The Comet is Coming, Drugdealer, Duendita, manydjs (dj set), Briston Maroney, Sheer Mag, 2SebastiAn, Aeris Roves, Kedr Livanskiy, and Scène Konbini Radio have been added to this year's lineup.

They will join the likes of Skepta, Charli XCX, Mura Masa, Flohio, Chromatics, Belle and Sebastian, Jessica Pratt, Kojey Radical, Ezra Collective, slowthai, and many others for the autumn event.

This year's festival will see 50 artists perform at Paris' Grande Halle de La Villette.

Adam Krefman, executive director of festivals at Pitchfork says, "This year represents growth and evolution for the festival. With nearly double the artists, and the utilization of new parts of La Grande Halle, we’re looking forward to making space for more rising talent - some of whom European fans might not otherwise get to see perform. It is an honor to continue to call Paris home, and to continue this global collaboration."

Pitchfork Paris 2019 takes place at the Grande Halle de La Villette from 31 October to 2 November. Tickets are on sale now.
