For 15 years, the Pitchfork Music Festival has delivered a refreshing, and unexpected musical lineup, singular in its ability to place contemporary, cutting-edge acts alongside some of the most revered artists of our time. It’s this unique blend of discovery and tradition that makes the Pitchfork Music Festival stand out as one of the most celebrated weekends of the year.

Featuring diverse vendors, as well as specialty record and craft fairs, the festival works to support local businesses while promoting the Chicago arts and food communities as a whole. We maintain a commitment to keeping ticket prices affordable, providing new and useful amenities, and working with the city’s best local vendors each year. Stay tuned for more festival feature updates soon.

2. I will get a PCR test within 24 hours of each of the days I am at the Festival, and will have proof of negative results if requested. (If the results are positive, I will stay home.)
