It’s that time of the summer. The week where all of your friend roll away in their rented cars or RVs towards the summer’s biggest soul-stealing, buzzband-laden music extravaganza, the mighty Pitchfork Festival. But have no fear, music-lovers of the five boroughs! 1.21 Gigawatts has planned a festival to save your wallets and your souls. 3 venues. 4 days. 60 + bands. Take that, Pitchfork, with your measly 43 act lineup! The festival, which boasts a mix of local favorites and long lost friends, may be the last big summer blowout before it’s time to say goodbye to happy hour brunches and stupid gladiator sandals. And at the indoor venue, you don’t have to worry about getting a sunburn!
Peep the set times below.
