Now that I’m covering more festivals, I think it’s time that I do a round up that puts a nice end cap on everything. This year was my first time going to Chicago, and the Pitchfork Music Festival. I loved every part of both.
The festival was on the smaller side, which was rather refreshing. I was able to run back and forth from stage to stage, catching at least a good part of every act. Met lots of great people, and ate some good food.
For me, my favorite sets of the weekend in order would have to be Hot Chip, Vampire Weekend, ChromaticsÂ @ Lincoln Hall, outside of festival grounds), Dirty Projectors, Sleigh Bells, Beach House and Japandroids.
It was hot almost all of the time, and rained pretty hard on and off on the first two days. The festival started around 1 and ended around 9-10 each day, which is pretty ideal.
Overall, I had a great time at the festival and definitely would recommend it to anyone who is considering it. Check out my full coverage of the festival right here or check out my posts via a day by day listing in the scheduled order, below.
