Visit Chicago: Pitchfork Music Festival 2017
Pitchfork Music Fest Keeps You Cool
July 14-16th. Union Park, Chicago
Summer may be at its peak by mid-July, but Pitchfork Music Fest is the cool, refreshing evening breeze you may need.
Massive music publication Pitchfork has rounded up some of the best musical talent for a curated 3-day experience at Union Park. This year’s lineup includes LCD Soundsystem, Thurston Moore Group, Danny Brown, PJ Harvey, A Tribe Called Quest, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, and a dozen more.
The independently run festival is celebrating its 12th year and expects around 50,000 people. They are committed to supporting Chicago’s talent in food as well as retail and a handful of non-profit organizations. But it doesn’t just end there…
In an effort to amplify the message of ending gun violence in their home of Chicago, Pitchfork fest encourages attendees to lend a helping hand to the cause by taking action and wearing orange.
Last but not least, multi-disciplinary genius Solange will be bringing Saint Heron House, an immersive experience featuring onsite art installations, film screenings, talks, jazz, and more.
All of the above sounds like good times? We hear you. You should head over to their site for tickets. Oh, and look out for the +PLUS option which grants you access to fancy areas and speedy entry.
For the last 12 years, the Pitchfork Music Festival has been honored to contribute to the cultural life of Chicago, one of the greatest cities in the world. However, like all Chicagoans, we are deeply troubled by the city's tragic gun violence. This year, we are proud to partner with @Everytown and Mothers Against Senseless Killing (MASK) on Beats>Bullets, an initiative that will make a difference.
