Having never been to Pitchfork Music Festival, I was excited to get in and find how small the park is that the festival takes place in. Being able to go to all the stages with such ease was just fantastic and made photographing the festival a breeze. The lineup for Pitchfork is always great and this year was no different. With a heavy dose all weekend of local acts, rap, and women taking control of the stage, this festival does everything correctly.

The Full Moon Festival was back again this year for it’s seventh edition and it once again took place on Governors Island, but moved from the beach to the Play Lawn, giving the festival a more spacious area in the fields.

Our photographer Leah Runyon was there to capture the action from both artists like Tops, Connan Mockasin, Vic Mensa and Kelela, as well as the well dressed crowd. Find some of her shots posted below.

Preview: Pitchfork Music Festival 2017

The Pitchfork Music Festival has been going strong since 2006 and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The annual July pilgrimage by thousands of music lovers to the beautiful city of Chicago has once again put together a strong line up. Obviously many speak of going to Chicago for Lollapalooza, but this far more intimate affair is really the festival you want to hit in the windy city.

Everyone knows when they go to a festival who is headlining each day. This year’s trio is LCD Soundsystem, A Tribe Called Quest, and Solange. None of them need many words written about them since all three have tirelessly proven themselves over and over again. The undercard is truly what people need to look towards in today’s festival environment since there are so many now to choose from, it’s the undercard that sells. So here are some of the best of what the undercard has to offer.

Last year New Jersey post-hardcore rockers Thursday returned from hiatus and have been touring in steady fashion. They returned to New York again for a free performance at McCarren Park along with Toronto rockers PUP for the final day of Northside Festival on June 11.

It was a brutally hot day, but it didn’t stop fans of the groups from packing out the blacktop of McCarren. It resulted in some sweaty singing that was pure dedication from both the bands and their fans.

Find photo galleries of both Thursday and PUP posted below both bands’ setlists.

On the third night of the 2017 Northside Festival not only were we treated with absolutely beautiful weather for an outdoor show, but we were also treated with an amazing, high-energy performance from the one and only Miguel at McCarren Park. Miguel is still out in support of his album Wildheart which was released back in 2015 (via RCA Records).

On the second night of the 2017 Northside Festival, we were treated to a special performance at Rough Trade from Brooklyn’s own Big Thief. Not only was this a special show for Northside, it was a special show in that it was the unofficial album release show for the band who put out their absolutely fantastic new album Capacity (out now via Saddle Creek), which is bound to end up on many year end lists. Along for the ride and kicking things off were openers Really Big Pinecone and Mega Bog.
