Achingly cool three-day hipster-fest takes over Chicago’s biggest park for a love in.
Right, let’s get this out the way, if you’re already going to Pitchfork’s festival, then pat yourself on the back – you’re a pretty cool dude. With a focus on new music rather than big bands, Pitchfork – held in Chicago’s Union Park - is where to head to be ahead of the crowd. This is music for the electric, chill-out, trip-hop, lo-fi generation.
With indie vendors, speciality fairs and a huge turn out from the Chicago arts scene, the Windy City will be super cool for three days. We speculate there will be more plaid shirts, trucker caps and faded jeans on parade than the glory 90s days of Seattle. And there’s no need to get that artfully distressed bedhead hair dirty as there’s no camping on site.
In line with the American fascination of ‘carding’ you will need photo ID to buy booze.
