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

The highlight of the summer for indie snobs returns to Union Park for another year of the Best New Music. Be prepared for another weekend of vintage clothing, dusty baseball diamonds and ironic mustaches as hotly tipped acts and legendary artists take the stage.

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.
