posted by Oscar July 20, 2017

Pitchfork Music Festival 2017 was definitely among one of the best editions of the Chicago installment of the festival. Three days full of artists doing what they do best, and we were in attendance scoping out Union Park to see what #P4kfest had in store for us.

What we got in return was awesome performances, some that will likely be on my year-end list of the best performances I saw this year. From icons to fast-rising up-and-comers, the eclectic balance at this festival had plenty to offer right from when the first acts hit the stage.

POD Photos: Pitchfork Music Festival 2017 – Day 1 feat. Vince Staples, Danny Brown, Dirty Projectors

posted by Oscar July 18, 2017

Check out our photos from Day 1 of Pitchfork Music Festival 2017. We kicked things off with the enigmatic rapper Vince Staples, then continued to the Red Stage to see the Thurston Moore Group to space out and see the Alternative legend play some brilliant experimental sounds. Frankie Cosmos, Danny Brown, Kamaiyah, and Dirty Projectors capped things off for our Friday festivities.

While we saw LCD Soundsystem deliver a stunning and thrilling headlining set, instead of taking photography, we joined the crowd and enjoyed it along with the masses… Time well-spent.
