Pitchfork is one of the most respected names in the music industry, and a daily go-to for staying up to date on new tracks & albums, videos, and general music happenings. In 2006 they started their own annual Pitchfork Music Festival in their hometown of Chicago, and each year they draw an impressive lineup of up and coming bands and today’s top acts. We went to Pitchfork last year for the first time and had such a blast we knew we had to go back – especially when we saw the 2012 lineup!
This year’s Pitchfork Festival is headlined by Feist, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Vampire Weekend, as well as not-to-be-missed sets by Beach House, Real Estate, Grimes, Cults, Hot Chip, Youth Lagoon and more…Here’s a playlist of some of our favorite songs by the bands playing at the festival!
