Pitchfork’s annual music festivals are fast becoming an iconic staple on the summer concert calendar and this year’s US festival is no exception, with appearances from Tame Impala, Chaka Khan, Earl Sweatshirt and Ms. Lauryn Hill doing a 20th anniversary performance of 1998’s “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”

If you are headed to Chicago’s Union Park for the three-day event July 20-22 — or just wish you were — we’ve got your soundtrack all set. Hit play and soak in the vibes.

If you obsess over singers and bands, and are one of those people who make a playlist for every occasion, join CMN’s Music Journalism Course and get real-time experience, intense feedback on your writing, exposure to music industry insiders, and a great place to display build your portfolio. Get all the details on the Music Journalism Course here.
