Pitchfork Turns Up Hard On Day 3

JpegMafia was one of the many acts performing at Pitchfork Fest.

Pitchfork Fest was different this year. Not bad, but definitely heading in a different direction. The first day of Pitchfork was real relax with the headliners being The Smile, Perfume Genius, and Alvvays. The show also featured stars Mavi and Leikeli47.

The second day of Pitchfork had a little interruption due to the rain, which forced everyone out, but an hour later fans where back in the gates. The headliners for day two were Big Thief, Weyes Blood, and King Krule. Weyes Blood hands down had the best show on Saturday with Vegas Vegabon and Yaya Bey being the runner ups.


Before we go into day three, Pitchfork had many activities you could enjoy with the Doordash backstage interviews, or you could shop with many artists and clothing vendors that were there. Day three was more energetic with many superstars heading the stage. The openers for day three were Bon Iver, Kelela, and Koffee. Koffee, Killer Mike, and Jpegmafia all tied for top performances that day with everyone running to the stage to see them and sing every word to their favorite songs.

Pitchfork is definitely holding its weight on showing upcoming talents and we can only wait and see what Pitchfork has planned for next year.
