The second day of Pitchfork Fest 2021 is in the books! Horsegirl, Bartees Strange, Divino Niño, Maxo Kream, and Amaaarae kicked off Saturday. St. Vincent owned the festival’s top spot, Kim Gordon‘s “Paprika Pony” gave me life, and Ty Segall & Freedom Band performed tracks off Harmonizer. See highlights from P4K Fest 2021 Day 2:

Waxahatchee

P4KFest darlings Waxahatchee returned for their third-ever set and toting a new album, Saint Cloud. Sunkissed folk on a bright afternoon, this set was best enjoyed laying in the grass as Katie Crutchfield delivered live cuts of “The Eye,” “Hell,” and “Fire.”

Faye Webster

Keeping the alt-folk vibes alive shortly after was rising artist Faye Webster. In the best way, her sound reminded me a little of Tennis (who doesn’t love them), and while she mostly played songs from her new album, I Know I’m Funny haha, she performed “Kingston,” her hit single off Atlanta Millionaires Club.

Angel Olsen

Night two was great for Angel Olsen fans. She’s such an exceptional performer and her first show back in two years delivered an unmissable mix of her hits like “All Mirrors” and “Shut Up Kiss Me.” She also dropped some of her newer songs, like “Gloria” off the Aisles EP. Sharon Van Etten joined Olsen on stage for their collab “Like I Used To,” sparking a massive roar from P4K fans.

Jamila Woods

Chicago’s own Jamila Woods was otherworldly as she moved fans with her powerful and airy vocals. She delivered must-hears “Holy” and “Lonely” off her 2017 album, HEAVN, and “GIOVANNI” from 2019s Legacy! Legacy! She also accentuated her style with one of the weekend’s best hairdos.

St. Vincent

I love the buzz of pre-show excitement, and there was plenty ahead of St. Vincent‘s headlining set. Earlier this year, Annie Clark released a stellar 70s-tinged album, Daddy’s Home, and the new live show proved the chameleonic artist is at the top of her game.
