P4K Fest returned on July 19-21: See the gallery
Pitchfork is all about thinking outside the box and disturbing the status quo, and that’s pretty evident as you go throughout the several acts in the day. While the music is quite eclectic for the average music listener, you’re bound to find a new artist you’ll adore at Pitchfork Fest, regardless of your taste.
Of course, we can’t forget The Isley Brothers, who dominated the hits right after golden hour on Day 2. While these artists range in genre, they all have one thing in common—they’re powerhouses of their generations and their fans know it.
(Fun Fact: Listen to The Isley Brothers a few times. Notice anything strange? Their music has been sampled by dozens across the industry, including by The Notorious B.I.G., Mac Miller, Logic, and Joey Bada$$. Go figure, huh?)
While festival food is always the bomb.com, Pitchfork brings a new spin to Chicago cuisine. You can elect for the traditional deep-dish pizza from Connie’s, a favorite amongst Chicago dwellers, or sample some of the vegan cuisine offered by several different vendors. Regardless, you’re bound to find whatever your heart desires here at Pitchfork.
Besides the food, the drinks are another highlight of the festival. Within the VIP section (it costs extra but totally worth it), you can enjoy free (yes, we said free) drinks catered by Svedka Vodka, Bulleit Rye Whiskey, and even Don Julio. Try drinks like 12-year aged scotch paired with watermelon juice, or a fresh glass of Goose Island Brewery’s Pale Ale.
