The time has rolled around for another year of the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. This weekend in Union Park, a number of great Philly artists will be taking the stage. Here’s a list of some of our talented friends making our city proud this weekend.



Tierra Whack

Last minute addition Tierra Whack has been a Philly favorite for some time, her latest release Whack World – which has been receiving quite a lot of buzz– has enough power to make someone just as proud to be from Philly as the phrase “Go Birds!” does. Check her out on the Green Stage from 4:15 p.m. to 5:10 p.m..




LA transplants Girlpool made their mark on Philadelphia for quite some time, especially with their most recent release Powerplant. The duo are playing at the Blue Stage from 5:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and if you’re in the market to see an intense set mixed with wholesome chemistry, don’t miss this one!



Japanese Breakfast

Another Philly favorite, Japanese Breakfast, just celebrated their one year release of Soft Sounds from Another Planet. Japanese Breakfast has been on what seems like a never-ending tour, but every show is packed with just as much energy as the previous one. A Martian dance-party is the only way to describe a set from them. They’re playing the Blue Stage from 4:00p.m. to 4:45 p.m.

Alex G

Everybody’s hometown hero Alex G is also playing this year’s fest, and with every fest our boy is at the top of everyone’s “Do Not Miss” list. Watching Alex G is like no other, every move is calculated – or is it? It’s definitely a set that will keep you guessing — a perfect mix of intensity and wild fluidity. He’s playing the Blue Stage from  6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
