GALLERY: PITCHFORK MUSIC FESTIVAL 2018 (UNION PARK / CHICAGO, IL)
July 25, 2018 Anna Selle

For attendees of Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago last weekend, two questions hung with heavy anticipation: 1) how am I going to make it to all the sets I want to see? And 2) should I have brought a poncho?

For many of us, the answer to the latter question was yes. The tension of the weekend was held taught as dark grey thunderheads rolled over Union Park on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Heavy rain turned to light rain, light rain turned to sun showsers, sun showers turned to sunshine, and the cycle repeated itself. But despite the omnipresent threat of inclement weather, the crowd of festival-goers enjoyed a full weekend of music and culture between three stages and several pop-up experiences.

This year’s lineup featured quite a few faces familiar to Chicago natives, from Paul Cherry to Noname. Highlights included Courtney Barnett’s electrifying set on Friday, Syd’s surprise on-stage collaboration with The Internet celebrating the release of their new album ‘Hive Mind,’ and Moses Sumney’s disarmingly smooth vocals that stopped us in our tracks as we mosied through the festival grounds.

Overwhelmingly, the weekend was filled with compassion and love, as artists like Simino and DRAM encouraged the audience to demonstrate their appreciation for one another. The grounds were filled with a comforting haze as the moisture filtered and fragmented sunlight through open air, like walking through a dream state. Waking up from another perfect Pitchfork weekend was the last thing we wanted to do early Monday morning.
