Pitchfork Music Festival
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
For 15 years, taste-making music publication Pitchfork has curated its own summer festival in Union Park, presenting lineups packed with some of the most of-the-moment indie rock, hip-hop and electronic acts. This year, indie rock outfit the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, hip-hop duo Run the Jewels and morose rockers the National headline the fest's anniversary celebration, joined by acts like Angel Olsen, the Fiery Furnaces, Danny Brown, Tierra Whack and Kim Gordon. As usual, attendees will be able to shop for souvenirs at the CHIRP Record Fair, sample Chicago cuisine provided by local restaurants and load up on swag at the various brand activations that line the park. If you're looking for a place to discover new music and keep the walking between stages to a minimum, Pitchfork Music Festival is the place to be.
