Pitchfork Announces Inaugural London Festival Edition

    After announcing the return of the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago this fall, the website has today revealed the details of the first-ever Pitchfork Music Festival London and the return of Pitchfork Music Festival Paris. The London iteration will take place from November 10-14 this year and will run back-to-back with Pitchfork Music Festival Paris, running November 16-20. Instead of being in a central location, both festivals will be held in multiple venues across each city.

    The inaugural Pitchfork Music Festival London will include Stereolab, Moses Boyd, black midi, Bobby Gillespie & Jenny Beth, Tirzah, Anna Meredith, Mykki Blanco, Girl Band, Nilüfer Yanya, Iceage, Cassandra Jenkins, Martha Skye Murphy, and many more. Now in its 10th year, Pitchfork Music Festival Paris will include Bobby Gillespie & Jehnny Beth, Shygirl, Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul, Sons of Kemet, Nubya Garcia, Amaarae, Erika de Casier, Cassandra Jenkins, KeiyaA, L’ Rain, and Bartees Strange, and more. Check out the lineup for both festivals below.

    “After an incredibly difficult year for artists, fans, and our music community, we’re excited to celebrate the return of live music with so many legendary venues across two of the most important music cities in the world,” Puja Patel, Editor-in-Chief of Pitchfork, said in a statement. “That we’re able to host festivals in London and Paris during the publication’s 25th anniversary feels all the more special.”

    Tickets for each event will be sold separately. Pre-sale tickets for London will be available on Wednesday, June 30 at 10am BST, with general on-sale to follow on Friday July 2 at 10am BST. Tickets for Paris will be available at 75% capacity on Wednesday, June 30 at 10am CET. Find more info here and here.
