pitchfork 2021

Music Festival

September 10 - 12, 2021
Chicago, Illinois, USA | In-Person

Pitchfork Music Festival Chicago, a distinctly local institution with an international megaphone and audience, curates a diverse mix of rising acts, established favorites, and career-defining performances. The 2021 event features headline performances from Erykah Badu, St. Vincent, and Phoebe Bridgers, making Pitchfork one of the first major festivals to feature all-female headliners.

"Never afraid to experiment, Pitchfork’s appeal stems from its yearly approach to curation.… The festival is not just interested in nostalgia or the state of the music today, but also the future of music. Acts further down on the lineup list may not perform sold-out shows at large venues just yet, but they are important to the state of underground and independent music, and speak to what will be new and next a year or two down the road. A big thing like a pandemic has not changed that ethos for the festival."
