Pitchfork Music Festival will return to Chicago’s Union Park July 21st–23rd, 2023 with a lineup topped by The Smile, Big Thief, and Bon Iver. Along with a wide range of vendors and a specialty record fair, Pitchfork Music Festival 2023 will showcase a combination of up-and-coming artists, established touring acts, and music legends, allowing attendees to discover new favorites while making milestone music memories.

“We’re excited to be back at Union Park with a lineup of artists responsible for some of the very best music of the past year—Alvvays, Kelela, Yaya Bey, Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupil, Grace Ives, 700 Bliss, and more—alongside a few special moments with indie icons,” said Pitchfork editor in chief Puja Patel. “For one, this year will mark the very first time that Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood (as The Smile) will perform at the Chicago festival, alongside Pitchfork favorite Bon Iver. And Big Thief will complete their tour of the fest’s stages over the years with a headlining set, their first at a festival this size.”
