Union Park Prepares For Its Seventh Annual Pitchfork Music Festival

Pitchfork Music Festival 2013

Pitchfork Music Festival is due to hit Chicago's Union Park again this weekend featuring some exciting headline sets from Bjork, Belle & Sebastian and R. Kelly.

Every summer this globally loved festival presents some 40 plus artists from all parts of the music spectrum, including both classic chart-toppers and new emerging talent, to 50,000 indie fans. They have been praised over their seven year existence for their cheap ticket prices and friendly atmosphere and that's not about to go any time soon. Apart from great live music on show for three days, there's some of the best indie vinyls for sale at the CHIRP Record Fair, some excellent posters and art-pieces about, as well as a craft fair and an array of musical books and magazines. It's not just for Stateside music fans though, the festival hits Europe for Pitchfork Music Festival Paris on October 31st, November 1st and November 2nd.

This year, as well as some classic headline artists, we'll see performances from artists including Foxygen, Waxatchee, Joanna Newsom, Brooklyn folk rockers Woods and M.I.A., as well as some seventies and eighties long-running musicians including London rockers Wire, post-punk outfit Swans and New Jersey trio Yo La Tengo.

If you're interested in showing up, it may be last minute but there's still tickets available for Friday 19th July, Saturday 20th July and Sunday 21st July at $50 per day. Gates open at 3pm on Friday and 12pm on Saturday and Sunday.
