One of the main festivals in Chicago, Pitchfork, brings some of the best known and underground talents alike, to play at Union Park in Chicago. Taking place from July 14-16, that warm, summer weekend will be full of music, dancing and of course, LCD Soundsystem live!

Friday will be lively and fun with performances from LCD Soundsystem, Dirty Projectors, Danny Brown, Thurston Moore Group, Vince Staples, Arca & Jesse Kanda, Kamaiyah, Hiss Golden Messenger, Frankie Cosmos, William Tyler, D?WN, Priests and Madame Gandhi.

Saturday features an all time favorite with Tribe Called Quest! More acts will features like PJ Harvey, Angel Olsen, the Feelies, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Mitski, Madlib, Arab Strap, S U R V I V E, Francis and the Lights, Weyes Blood, Jeff Rosenstock, Cherry Glazerr and Vagabon.

Sunday will have live performances from Solange, Nicolas Jaar, the Avalanches, Ride, American Football, Isaiah Rashad, Hamilton Leithauser, Pinegrove, Jamila Woods, Colin Stetson, Derrick Carter, Joey Purp, NE-HI and Kilo Kish. Did someone say Nicolas Jaar? I am really excited to finally see him live, especially in my hometown.

If you are looking for tickets, Pitchfork is always a bang for the buck for the acts that it brings. With daily passes at $75, and a three-day pass for $175, this is a good deal for festies out there. There is also a layaway option for anyone who can not afford the full price ticket.

For 2017, Pitchfork is bringing a new tier of tickets to its options. Available at $365 for a three-day pass, it brings many amenities to its ticket holders. Pitchfork +PLUS passes include everything that General Admissions passes provide plus:

Access to premium food vendors
Access to private specialty bars (21+ area)
Deluxe air-conditioned bathrooms
Shaded seating areas
Cell-phone charging stations
Storage lockers*
Exclusive and expedited entry to Festival
“Come and Go” re-entry access to the Festival grounds.

Interesting is its re-entry option, a must-have if you want to be going in-and-out of the festival.
