The Pitchfork Music Festival will return to Chicago’s Union Park September 10-12, 2021.
For 15 years, the Pitchfork Music Festival has delivered a refreshing, and unexpected musical lineup, singular in its ability to place contemporary, cutting-edge acts alongside some of the most revered artists of our time. It’s this unique blend of discovery and tradition that makes the Pitchfork Music Festival stand out as one of the most celebrated weekends of the year.
Featuring diverse vendors, as well as specialty record and craft fairs, the festival works to support local businesses while promoting the Chicago arts and food communities as a whole. We maintain a commitment to keeping ticket prices affordable, providing new and useful amenities, and working with the city’s best local vendors each year. Stay tuned for more festival feature updates soon.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. As festival dates approach, we will provide our community with pertinent information on festival preparedness, including what may be required beyond a ticket to enter festival grounds. By purchasing a ticket, you agree to comply with all Federal, State, and Local laws, ordinance, regulations, and the rules of the Event Organizers when attending the event.
There is a strict NO REFUND policy for this event. If the festival is postponed or rescheduled due to COVID, customers will get the opportunity to keep their passes for the new dates or request a refund.
By purchasing a ticket for our 2021 event you agree to to following:
1. I have been, or will be, fully inoculated against COVID-19 before the Festival, and will be able to show proof of vaccination if requested.
2. I will get a PCR test within 24 hours of each of the days I am at the Festival, and will have proof of negative results if requested. (If the results are positive, I will stay home.)
To ensure the health and safety of guests, artists, and staff, the Pitchfork Music Festival will adhere to the city of Chicago’s Covid-19 protocol, and will keep attendees updated as federal and local regulations evolve.
