The streaming schedule for Pitchfork Music Festival 2023

 A large crowd cheers while standing in front of a stage with lights shining down on a band performing, and several large buildings in the background.

If our hometown event didn’t deliver enough music festival for your summer, another one just down the road is about to start blasting tunes over Lake Michigan — or at least across the West Loop.

Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival runs next Friday through Sunday, July 21-23, and is absolutely silly with artists from the 88Nine playlist. Alvvays, Weyes Blood, Snail Mail, The Smile and Wisconsin’s own Bon Iver are merely a fraction of the announced entertainment that seems curated for our listeners.

While tickets to the festival have been on sale since March, we — and, more importantly, the event’s organizers — understand that it’s not always possible to get your physical self down I-94, even for a lineup like this. That’s why, for the third straight year, you’ll be able to livestream select sets and interviews via Pitchfork’s YouTube channel and website. You can find the full schedule below with times and the stage where they’ll perform, plus a few of our picks in bold.
