Moving back to its traditional weekend, Pitchfork Music Festival returns to Union Park from July 15–17, 2022. The event still boasts one of the most interesting summer music festival lineups in the city, bringing together indie rockers, hip-hop artists and experimental musicians for a three-day party on the West Side.

This year, stalwart rockers the National (originally scheduled to perform at the canceled 2020 festival), singer-songwriter Mitski and The Tonight Show house band the Roots serves as the festival's headlining acts. They're joined by symphonic rock collective Spiritualized, indie-pop outfit Japanese Breakfast, rapper Earl Sweatshirt, reunited emo rockers Karate and jazz fusion combo BadBadNotGood.
There's also a handful of local artists on the bill, including rapper Cupcakke, singer-songwriter KAINA and hip-hop activist Noname. Former Chicagoan Jeff Parker (best known for performing with post-rock outfit Tortoise) will also appear at the festival, accompanied by his band the New Breed.
