Now that the Pitchfork Music Festival has become the "other big festival" in Chicago besides Lollapalooza, they've decided to go global and announced the Pitchfork Music Festival Paris, set for this October and co-curated by Bon Iver.
There's such irony in the fact that they've announced an American act with a french name to help curate the show, but I'm sure Justin Vernon and Bon Iver is the right vibe to make the scene happen. This isn't the first time Pitchfork has influenced a European Summer music festival, they've been curating a stage at the Primavera Sound Festival for a few years.
The 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival Paris will happen on October 28-29 at La Grande Halle de la Villette, and will play host to 20 bands, even more DJs, and an audience of up to 5000 people. Confirmations to the Pitchfork Music Festival Paris lineup so far include include Jens Lekman, Wild Beasts, Cut Copy, Kathleen Edwards, and Pantha du Prince.
Pitchfork Music Festival Paris tickets cost € 79.90 for two-day pass, which will run you $116.198 in American dollars.
