Words by Evan La Ruffa

Pitchfork Music Festival, we’re ready for you. With the summer finally getting hot and nasty around these parts, Chicago does what it normally does each summer; take off its clothes and lose its mind. Neighborhood festivals, Renegade Craft Fair, and titans like Lollapalooza all call the Windy City home, making July and August feel like a constant uphill climb to do everything there is to do. Among the plethora of options is the upcoming incarnation of the Pitchfork Music Festival which rolls into town with the likes of Bjork and R. Kelly headlining. While the lineup is as diverse as ever and Flatstock occurring in the shadows of the stages, there will be plenty of sound and images for one weekend. IPaintMyMind will be there for the weekend to take concert photos, being your eyes and ears, reminding you of acts you need to see again and others still bubbling up.

IPMM is also thrilled to be offering an Exclusive Print Release to coincide with the weekends events, featuring local artist Dan Grzeca. Look for it next week in the IPaintMyMind Store! Here’s the schedule for the weekend, enjoy and check back for photos of it all!

Single Day Tickets are still available for anyone still looking to go! We’re certainly looking forward to: BJORK, SOLANGE, MIA, YO LA TENGO, TORO Y MOI, EL-P, KILLER MIKE, PARQUET COURTS, METZ, & BLOOD ORANGE.

See you this weekend, July 19th-21st!
