Pitchfork Picks

Don’t just take my word for it. Time Out Chicago has gathered up some local bloggers (including yours truly) to give you their takes on this year’s Pitchfork Festival.

Read on for the can’t-miss sets, must-miss snoozers and more. Are you going? What sets will you be seeing from the front row and which will you be listening to from the port-o-potty?

    I totally disagree about Pitchfork moving and expanding. If that’s what you want, go to Lollapalooza. One of the best things about Pitchfork is it’s focus on good music for a low price. Move out of the park and start adding stages and it won’t be half as cool (or as cheap) as it is now.

    Besides, it’s hard enough to choose who to see btween the main stages and tent as it is now…

    I appreciate your comment, but there are very few choices to make at Pitchfork unless you are a fan of every artist. I’d move from Union Park because it’s not the best kept or prettiest, and only if there was (and I’m not saying that there is) a better choice. Grant Park is not an option, but some of the other parks have been getting facelifts. And I’m not talking about adding all sorts of stages, but I think it would be nice to have a choice over the main stage with an acoustic set, a dj set, or a local band, and I know we are already getting a little of that now. There are certainly some main stage acts that I’d like to miss.
