Curated by tastemaking music publication Pitchfork, this summer music festival typically boasts performances from the most of-the-moment acts. Taking place in Union Park, this year's lineup features headlining sets from pop-rock trio HAIM, Swedish electro-pop star Robyn and Motown R&B legends the Isley Brothers. The rest of the bill is equally exciting, featuring acts like Stereolab, Charli XCX, Pusha-T, Mavis Staples and Kurt Vile. With only three stages set amid a small park, it's easy to move around the fest and see all of your favorites while discovering some new music along the way. While you're there, don't forget to snag a souvenir from the record fair and sample some of the Chicago cuisine being cooked by local restaurants.

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.
