    Why are these Flaming Lips fans so happy? Maybe because they can help choose the band's set list at Pitchfork.

    If you don't have your Pitchfork ticket yet, the latest news from the festival should convince you to get on it.

    Festival closers The Flaming Lips have just announced they will be choosing the "Write the Night" format for their own set.

    "Write the Night" gives ticket buyers the option to go online and vote for the set list of their dreams -- a format the festival is already following for their Friday night lineup.

    Leader singer Wayne Coyne says "we are more than glad to be part of 'Write the Night,' and will do our best to accommodate the wildest and most obscure of requests."

    So you want to hear their rendition of "Borderline" by Madonna or Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody?" Then get your tickets now and start voting.

    The Pitchfork Music Festival will be held July 17-19 at Union Park. Tickets range from $35-$60

    Insider Info: Three day festival passes just sold out, so don't wait to get your ticket. If it's your first time at Pitchfork, bring a sheet to sit on, some friends, and be ready to sit back and relax. The festival may bring some big names to Union Park, but the atmosphere is completely laid back. It's always one of the best music festivals of the summer.
