Pitchfork Music Festival

Show Summary

Pitchfork Music Festival is a series of videos from Pitchfork TV shot at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. This annual summer music festival, organized by Pitchfork Media, has been held in Union Park each July since 2005. The three-day yearly event showcases more than 40 independent music bands and artists on three stages. The videos each highlight a different band including Fleet Foxes, Zola Jesus, No Age, Neko Case, Kurk Vile, Cut Copy, Battles and many more. Viewers can hear music from HEALTH, Shabazz Palaces, Twin Shadow, Toro Y Moi, Das Racist, Cold Cave, EMA and Julianna Barwick. The festival mainly highlights alternative rock, rap, hip-hop, electronic and dance music, although occasionally viewers will also see hardcore punk, experimental rock and jazz music. One year the videos showed a song from each band's best album and another of the bands performed its greatest album in its entirety. One video features a Yoko Ono performance. At one point, Pitchfork Media had its website viewers vote on which songs the bands would do on the first night of the festival. In the 2010 videos, viewers will also find a few comedy routines. This set of videos spans several years, quite a few different types of music and a multitude of bands and performers.
