Forget #FOMO: Half of Pitchfork Festival’s Lineup Is Set to Play NYC in Coming Months

Some of us won’t be able to make it to the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago’s Union Park this weekend (airfare isn’t cheap and who owns a car?), so we develop coping mechanisms. “It’ll be so humid there,” we tell ourselves. This could possibly be true. “The crust on the pizza is way too thick in that city. We would have nothing to eat.” This is maybe not true.

“But there are so many options of how to spend the weekend here in Brooklyn that would cost us little to no money, like the four-day 1.21 Gigawatts Festival in Bushwick.” This is definitely true.

“And lots of the bands playing at Pitchfork will soon be making their way to our neck of the woods, many in venues with the advantage of air conditioning, some whose tickets are completely free.” This is also definitely true. See, coping mechanisms are great. Living in New York is great. Take note of the sizable chunk of Pitchfork’s lineup that will be gracing our city’s stages in the next few months–maybe grab a few tickets while you’re at it–so you don’t have to spend the weekend combating every move with #FOMO. That’s exactly why you live in New York.

You just saw him two weeks ago at Central Park’s SummerStage or Hammerstein Ballroom, so we’re all good here.
