Pitchfork Music Festival 2021 Line-Up Announced

It’s official, Pitchfork Music Festival will return to Chicago’s Union Park, running over a three-day period September 10-12, 2021.


In its 15th year, the festival returns stronger than ever, with headliners Erykah Badu, St. Vincent and Phoebe Bridgers set to perform.

This indie darling of a festival is always a crowd favorite with its limited yet effective stage layouts and attention to its Chicago roots. After over a year of uncertainty and cancellations throughout the music festival and touring industries, it is fantastic to see one come back, better than ever.

Pitchfork describes the experience:

Since 2006, the Pitchfork Music Festival has consistently proven to be one of the most welcoming, comfortable, reasonably priced, and rewarding weekends of music around. Hosting 60,000 attendees of all ages from all 50 states and dozens of countries, Pitchfork Music Festival showcases the best up-and-coming music from around the world, as well as special performances from touring stalwarts and legends alike.

Featuring diverse vendors, as well as specialty record and craft fairs, the festival works to support local businesses while promoting the Chicago arts and food communities as a whole. We maintain a commitment to keeping ticket prices affordable, providing new and useful amenities, and working with the city’s best local vendors each year. Stay tuned for more festival feature updates soon.

Festival goers can be further comforted by its flexible cancellation/reschedule and refund policy, if the festival is postponed or rescheduled due to COVID-19, they will get the opportunity to keep their passes for new dates or request a refund.

Other local highlights include DEHD, Divino Niño and Jamila Woods, while overseas talent includes 2019 festival highlight black midi.

Tickets can be purchased via SEE Tickets, and more information can be found on Pitchfork Music Festival’s website.
