The band Wilco—early and vocal supporters of Obama's campaign—are performing at the festival, which makes the candidate's appearance seem a bit more natural. Conversely, aides say Obama will not be attending this weekend's Pitchfork Music Festival in Union Park because "he found the website's review of Travistan to be deliberately ungenerous and reeking of agenda."
