We’re heading towards the middle of July and that means that Pitchfork Music Festival is right around the corner! P4K has been a highlight of Chicago’s music festival scene, constantly bringing in amazing artists to show off their skills over three days in Union Park. This year their stellar lineup is headlined by some pretty amazing acts: LCD Soundsystem, A Tribe Called Quest, and Solange! The undercard, featuring 38 musicians and bands, is just as strong.
So to get you ready for this excellent example of Chicago music festivals, we’ve compiled a playlist to get you familiar with the diverse lineup. Each performer gets one song on this mixtape, giving you just a little taste of what’s to come during your Pitchfork Music Festival weekend.
If you still haven’t gotten your tickets, you better hurry! Regular three day passes for the fest have unfortunately sold out, but you can still pick up Pitchfork Plus ($395) or single day tickets ($75).
