Pitchfork To Host Midwinter Music Festival At Art Institute of Chicago
It’s the dead of winter.
If you’re living in the Midwest, you may feel constrained to the indoors as you desperately attempt to fend off mother nature. Perpetual thoughts of the warm, summer air keep plaguing your mind, only working to intensify your chronic festival withdrawals. As a music fanatic, you know all too well that this may feel like a form of torture. Thankfully, Pitchfork is coming to the rescue.
From February 15th-17th, the publication will be teaming up with The Art Institute of Chicago to host Midwinter Music Festival. With acts such as Joey Purp, Kamasi Washington, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Deerhunter scheduled to perform, the fest will give goers an opportunity to experience a wide range of sounds over a three day span.
It’s evident that Pitchfork went above and beyond to construct a well-rounded lineup and those fortunate enough to attend will experience an event like no other.
Adam Krefman, Pitchfork’s fest director, stated that “Midwinter is an ambitious new concept, and with it we’re intentionally trying to push the boundaries of live music. Placing forward-thinking musicians in the context of the Art Institute, we’re opening a dialogue between mediums, and creating a unique cultural event.”
If you appreciate art and enjoy live music, it’s evident that Midwinter will do a little more than just take the edge off until festival season.
