Chicago's Union Park was once again filled with a who's who of the music industry from July 15–17 for the 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival. Drawing more than 18,000 industry insiders and music fans alike each day, the festival is known for bringing together an eclectic lineup of more than 40 artists, many of whom are on the brink of breaking into the mainstream.
Headliners this year included the psychedelic sounds of Animal Collective on Friday, Seattle-based mellow rockers Fleet Foxes on Saturday and festival-favorites TV On The Radio on Sunday. With many of the more talked about bands playing earlier in the day throughout the weekend, it was no surprise that three-day passes sold out in a single day.
In addition to the headliners, the festival's Green stage played host to recently reunited rockers Guided By Voices and the Dismemberment Plan, and ambient punk rockers Deerhunter, while its sister stage (the Red stage) boasted such heavy hitters as hometown darling Neko Case, Australian synth-pop collective Cut Copy and, one of the most anticipated sets of the weekend, the untamable frontman Tyler, The Creator and his hip-hop outfit Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. But when festivalgoers trekked over to the slightly hidden Blue stage, they were lucky enough to catch some truly buzzworthy acts. Electronic newcomer James Blake played the nicely shaded stage to a tightly packed and dancing crowd on Friday, while concertgoers the following day were wooed by the larger-than-life personality and stage attire of Zola Jesus.
Rounding out the festival grounds, attendees had the opportunity to seek shelter from the sun while perusing the handmade crafts and hard-to-find vinyl at the annual CHIRP Record Fair, as well as browse the one-of-a-kind concert posters from local and national artists at the Flatstock poster show.
In spite of the almost unbearable heat that plagued the Windy City all weekend, this year's installment of the Pitchfork Music Festival was a resounding success for artists and concertgoers alike. And this blogger would recommend that you get your tickets early next year as it's sure to sell out even faster!

Tyler, The Creator Wins Best Rap Album For 'IGOR' | 2020 GRAMMYs
Watch Tyler take home his first-ever GRAMMY win, for Best Rap Album, at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards
Tyler, The Creator has won Best Rap Album for IGOR at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. This is his first ever GRAMMY win. Earlier in the show, he served up a (literally) lit performance of "EARFQUAKE" and "NEW MAGIC WAND" from IGOR.
In a tender moment, he brought his (crying and very excited) mother on stage to accept his golden gramophone.
"Stick with me, I don't know if I'm gonna be up here again," Tyler said during his acceptance speech. "One: to my mother, you did a great job raising this guy," he said, looking to his mom and smiling.

Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Lineup Announced
The sixth year of the rapper's annual music festival boasts a beastly lineup and possible hints at a surprise appearance
The 2017 lineup has just been announced for Tyler, The Creator's annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival at Exposition Park in Los Angeles, and it's a doozy.
Major headliners for the two-day festival include Lana Del Rey and Tyler, The Creator, who just last month battled for the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, having both released their latest albums the same week. Del Rey squeaked ahead by roughly 1,000 albums sold to take No. 1. It was Tyler's first career No. 1 debut and Del Rey's second.
Additional acts announced include GRAMMY winners 2 Chainz, Solange, Kid Cudi, and Justice, a slew of past GRAMMY nominees, including A$AP Rocky, the Internet, Earl Sweatshirt, Kelis, and Kehlani, as well as tons of rising and freshly minted stars like Migos, Vince Staples, Brockhampton, Alison Wonderland, and Lil Yachty.
Careful readers will of course note that nearly every member of the original Odd Future lineup has also made the billing this year, with the notable exception of Frank Ocean. That said, there is still one blank spot on the lineup poster, and savvy eyes will pick up "+ special guest" in the announcement. So perhaps the door still remains open on the possibility of an impromptu Odd Future reunion during either Tyler, The Creator's or Earl Sweatshirt's sets. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
