Pitchfork is another day closer, and to calm your anxiety, we have a brief guide of the artists you absolutely need to see on Saturday.
Let us know who you're looking forward to seeing down below in the comments.
1:55 – Blue Stage – Julia Holter
Julia Holter is an American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles. Her sound is imaginative, progressive, and very approachable. She's an artist to check out this Saturday, and one to follow in the future as well.
5:45 – Blue Stage – Ryan Hemsworth
Ryan Hemsworth makes downtempo, glitched out dance music that pulls from R&B, and is sprinkled with generous amounts of 808 snare, pops, and claps. His tracks stand out from the crowd; songs like “Three Hours In” don't just bump, they swirl and build to sometimes majestic heights.
7:25 – Red Stage – Solange
Neo-soul and future-pop music from Beyonce's younger sister.
7:45 – Blue Stage – Andy Stott
Blending dub and techno into into a minimalist trance-inspired mix, Stott’s melodic take manages to deliver a complete Headphones experience as well the excitement and builds perfect for a summer night. If you need further convincing, his latest album, Luxury Problems, is a great place to start.
8:45 – Blue Stage – Rustie
One of two great producers Pitchfork has brought over from Glasgow, the other being Hudson Mohawke (one half of TNGHT). Rustie will be playing against Belle & Sebastian who hail from the same city, too. Anyway, Rustie melds grime with dub into a psychedelic, future-garage laser beam. Bring your best footwork moves to the floor for this one.
Constellation Chicago (3111 N. Western Ave) – Boiler Room Afterparty
Nicholas Jaar, Jacques Green, Todd Edwards, & More. This lineup includes some very exciting electronic musicians who blend soul, ambient, R&B, with house, future garage, and jungle grooves. And its free. RSVP here. We'll see you there.
