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 recordsmusic 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.
