There are tons of reasons to be skeptical of the music festival industrial complex. But as far as big summer fests go, there are more things to celebrate about Pitchfork Fest than most others. To start, it's not a total dude fest (lots of lady artists and female-fronted bands, good job y'all). Also, minimal representation from major-labels (lots of independent labels and people with roots in underground/DIY communities.) Here is a MIX of bands we are most excited to see this weekend in Chicago.
