[pullquote quote="Why raise ticket prices if you don't need to, right?"]Seven years in, this independently run three-day event has consistently proven to be one of the most welcoming, comfortable, reasonably priced and singular weekends of music around.
Two more bands have just been added to this year’s fest — Japandroids will be playing Friday, and Chromatics will perform on Saturday!
The Pitchfork Music Festival returns to Chicago’s Union Park Friday, July 13 – Sunday, July 15 to celebrate an outstanding range of music from around the globe.
This year, we are excited to introduce “The PMF Upgrade Challenge.” 2012 attendees are invited to participate for a chance for them and a friend to be upgraded to VIP for the entire festival weekend.
As previously announced, this year’s excellent lineup introduces a creative range of emerging bands while honoring already beloved and internationally renowned acts, including…
- Vampire Weekend
- Godspeed You! Black Emperor
- Hot Chip
- A$AP Rocky
- The Field
- Schoolboy Q
- Kendrick Lamar
- Cloud Nothings
