Saw a lot of great sets this weekend, but some were better than others. The festival went all out on supporting local musicians, with two of the headlining acts based her in the Windy City. The gamble paid off, and the tenth anniversary crowd was the biggest the fest has ever seen. They also stepped up their hip-hop game once again, grabbing some of the hottest names in rap to counter the indie rock vibe you would associate with Pitchfork.
As easy as it is to get around Union Park, you can’t see it all. So this ranking is based solely on sets that I actually got to watch without leaving after a few songs to go take pictures at another stage.
10. The Julie Ruin (didn’t get close enough for a decent picture)
3. Run The Jewels
And the worst
(That’s it everyone else was good)
