Pitchfork Music Festival is something I look forward to every summer here in Chicago. The festival takes place in the West Side at Union Park and is filled with music, food, drinks, and music across three days. This will be my fifth year attending the festival, and even though this year seemed to be extra crowed, there is always something magical to be found here.
With only three stages, and all of them being so close together, it is super easy to get from set to set or just relax in the grass.
I love to spend my time between acts exploring the different vendors. There is always a book fort, local artists displaying posters, endless records, and quirky jewelry.
Perfect way to end the weekend with some Nicolas Jaar!

Pitchfork’s style is very different than many mainstream festivals. There is an equal balance between vintage, trendy, and just plain wearing whatever the hell you want. Pitchfork allows you to be creative and unique with your festival style. You truly will find some standout outfits here! Since that isn’t my comfort zone, I wanted my outfits to speak through pattern (while still being effortless and comfortable). My favorite would have to be the last day when I wore this awesome postcard printed skirt from J.Crew!
No festival is complete without some awesome Chicago food vendors!
Since Goose Island is the vendor for all the festivals beer, each year they will collaborate with a musical artist to brew a beer that will only be served at the festival. This year they collaborate with S U R V I V E to produce this amazing red pale ale!
Best Pitchfork Food Vendors:
