Pretend you’re majoring in music, literature or technology at this multi-faceted fest on the campus of the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Sets from the likes of Mount Kimbie, Frankie Cosmos, Playboy Carti and Jpegmafia form the bulk of Pygmalion’s syllabus, but you can also check out comedy sets from Kyle Kinane and Tig Notaro or attend a live Tesla coil demonstration. Just leave the Jäger bombs and toga parties to the real college kids—you don’t want to be late to pop-punk duo Diet Cig.
