Music Festival

July 21 - 23, 2023
Chicago, Illinois | In-Person

Since 2006, the Pitchfork Music Festival has consistently proven to be one of the most welcoming, comfortable, reasonably priced, and rewarding weekends of music around. Hosting 60,000 attendees of all ages from all 50 states and dozens of countries, Pitchfork Music Festival showcases the best up-and-coming music from around the world, as well as special performances from touring stalwarts and legends alike. Featuring diverse vendors, as well as specialty record, poster, 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.

"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."
