Pitchfork Music Festival

Carly Rae Jepsen, Neon Indian set for Pitchfork Music Festival 2016

Pitchfork Music Festival is returning to Chicago’s Union Park in its eleventh edition this July 15-17.

The Pitchfork Music Festival is an annual three-day summer music festival organised by an influential Chicago-based online music magazine Pitchfork Media. The lineup covers artists from different genres, including alternative rock, pop, rap, hip-hop, electronica, and dance music. Judging from this year’s billing, however, it looks like the festival is aiming to introduce new indie favourites to its revellers more than usual.
