Pitchfork Music Festival 2022

The American city of Chicago hospitably welcomes the participants of the Pitchfork Music Festival, which will be held July 15-17, 2022. The venue for the international music festival is, as in previous years, Union Park, Chicago, USA.

Pitchfork Music Festival is a multi-genre music festival in Chicago. Every year, the most influential and popular artists of almost all musical genres that are heard by music lovers come to it every year.

Pitchfork Festival, like few others, keeps abreast of the modern music scene. For three days, Chicago becomes the center of contemporary music. More than 50 thousand guests from the United States and other countries of the world come to the festival.

2022 headliners include The National, Mitski, The Roots, Japanese Breakfast, Earl Sweatshirt, Spiritualized, Parquet Courts, Toro y Moi and Lucy Dakus.

These artists represent different musical genres and styles. Pitchfork Festival is more of a huge music get-together than a music festival in the usual sense.

The festival was first held in 1995 in Chicago. This year was the year of its foundation. The event is currently organized and owned by American businessman Conde Nast. But the creator of the idea and its inspirer is the writer Ryan Schreiber, who, in fact, created this mega-popular musical event.

Schreiber founded Pitchfork and the website has built a reputation for its extensive coverage of indie rock music. It has since expanded to cover all musical styles, including pop music.

Conde Nast acquired the site in 2015 and began organizing outdoor events, although it was Ryan Schreiber who remained as its editor-in-chief until 2019.

First and foremost, Pitchfork is an influential music site that has a huge impact on the careers of musicians. The Chicago Festival, which has been held annually since 2015, can be considered its public expression, which every year is becoming more and more popular among music lovers of various directions and genres.
