The most independent music festival is back. The 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival is one of the most eclectic and anticipated festivals of the summer. Music fans can see some of the best artists right in the West Loop.
Pitchfork Music Festival features some of the best artists in modern music. Fans can see Bjork perform songs from her latest album, Biophilia. The Icelandic artist always gives spellbinding performances that have made her one of the most respected musicians for the past 20 years . Her quirky style and atmospheric songs are not to be missed. Other featured artists include The Breeders, Belle and Sebastian, M.I.A. and Solange Knowles.
While festival goers enjoy the music, they can buy some music at the Chirp Record Fair from the Chicago Independent Record Project. In addition to buying records, music lovers can donate their records to the project as well. They can also check out the Coterie Craft Fair, where many Chicago artists are showcasing their unique jewelry, clothes and home furnishings.
The festival is not only cool, but green! The festival runs completely on biodiesel fuel. There are also many places festival goers can recycle in the hundreds of recycling bins available on the grounds. In contrast to other crowded, overpriced summer festivals, Pitchfork has a laid back atmosphere where music fans can enjoy an affordable concert. They can enjoy walking around the beautiful Union Park with the help of many friendly volunteers. The music, arts, and welcoming environment all make the eighth annual Pitchfork Music Festival one of the destination festivals of the summer.
