Over the past decade or so, Pitchfork Media has earned its place among (many would argue atop) the most respected voices in music reviews and news. Following its online successes, Pitchfork decided in 2005 to host a Music festival in Chicago’s Union Park, which has since become a yearly mecca for up-and-coming artists and music lovers alike.
These photos are from the first two days of this year’s festival, shot for the Chicago Journal.
Artists featured below (in order): Willis Earl Beal, Sleigh Bells, A$AP Rocky, Japandroids, The Dirty Projectors, Feist, Hot Chip, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
