It's a sign of the times, the Pitchfork Music Festival has been canceled.

Honestly, it's not much of a surprise but disappointing nonetheless.

I always looked at Pitchfork as Chicago's "other big music festival," usually just a few weeks before Lollapalooza.

Indieheads would disagree, saying the Pitchfork Music Festival has cemented itself more than just second best.

It can be pretty daunting to think about the future of live music right now, but know that we are fully committed to bringing Pitchfork Music Festival back in 2021, if the public health situation allows for it.


Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Run The Jewels, and The National were all set to headline the show.

If you already bought tickets to the show, expect an email from Pitchfork with details on how to get a refund.

Lollapalooza hasn't even announced their lineup for 2020, and with the current situation at hand, it would be incredible if the show even happens.

Will there be any live events in 2020? Sports, music, anything? What do you think? Tell us!
