The annual Pitchfork Music Festival kicks off in Chicago’s Union Park tomorrow, with three full days of live music from Windy City natives Wilco and Chance The Rapper, Scottish electro hitmakers Chvrches, synthpoppers Future Islands, and many more acts spanning all genres. If you have tickets to the sold out festival, expect bonus features like official after-parties with DJ sets from Haim and Stefan Ponce, tastings of Chance The Rapper’s new beer (a lager created “for the hardworking people of Chicago”), as well as separate record, craft, and book fairs. If you don’t have tickets, fear not, a live stream will be available all weekend on Pitchfork.com. No matter what your plans are though, plug your headphones into our Pitchfork Music Festival playlist and get a taste of the acts taking the stage.
