Pitchfork Music Festival made its post-pandemic return to Chicago at Union Park on September 10-12, 2021. Headlined by Erykah Badu, Kim Gordon, and Animal Collective, SPIN was there to cover all of the action.

With a fresh mix of legendary and up-and-coming acts, the festival encompassed a melting pot of genres for every kind of music geek. The high-energy weekend brought eclectic performances and good vibes all around.
