“We are unbelievably excited to celebrate the return of live shows, our music community, and, most importantly, the artists and events crews who have made this year’s festival possible,” Pitchfork editor-in-chief Puja Patel said in a press release. “I know this will be a cathartic weekend for all of us, and that it lands right before the 25th anniversary of the publication makes it all the more special.”
Organizers of Pitchfork Music Festival stated that detailed health and safety regulations will be made available closer to the festival. Under entry requirements, however, organizers noted that “All attendees, vendors, staff, artists, and anyone ages 12 and older entering Union Park will need to be fully inoculated against COVID-19, or have proof of a negative PCR test within the past 24 hours, for each day of the Festival.”
Additionally, current IDPH and CDPH guidelines require that masks be worn throughout the festival except when eating or drinking, however, Pitchfork stated that it “is working closely with local health officials and will continue to update this policy as local guidelines become available.”
