Attendees showed up prepared for a beautiful day of music on Sunday at Pitchfork Music Festival, July 19, 2015.

It's all about triumphant returns at this year's Pitchfork Music Festival, where fest alum LCD Soundsystem and Solange will be joined by reinvigorated alternative hip-hop outfit A Tribe Called Quest as the weekend's headliners. The rest of the three-day event should be equally joyous, filled with hotly-tipped bands, a tent back with records and some free kefir samples (probably).

Pitchfork is always a good time, and unlike some of the festivals around, it's a more friendly setting with plenty of room to stretch out or escape to sit on the grass for awhile. There are almost always good vendors too, from food to crafts. And you can win really cool prizes. This is probably my favorite music festival.
