Pitchfork Festival is going off in London this week! The hybrid event combines in-person events and online live streams. Over 50 artists will be performing. The inaugural London event is running back-to-back with Pitchfork Festival Paris, which is now in its 10th year.
Puja Patel, editor in chief of Pitchfork magazine, explained: “After an incredibly difficult year for artists, fans, and our music community, we’re excited to celebrate the return of live music with so many legendary venues across two of the most important music cities in the world. That we’re able to host festivals in London and Paris during the publication’s 25th anniversary feels all the more special.”
If you’re lightning quick, there’s still time to buy a live stream ticket for Metronomy’s Colour Factory show tonight (11/11/2021). You can also order the band’s forthcoming vinyl record or a poster at the same time if you fancy. The stream will only be going out live, so don’t delay!
