‘Pitch’ing in at Pitchfork Music Festival

by Nikki Hartel

Chicago is an epicenter for summer music festivals. When you say July to any Chicago music fan, they automatically think– Pitchfork. It is an annual summer music festival that takes place over one weekend in July (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) at Union Park. The music spans from indie-rock, rap and hip-hop, dance, punk, experimental, electronica, and jazz. This year I attended as a volunteer on behalf of the non-for-profit, Rock For Kids, helping run their charity auction, which benefited music education for at-risk youth.
