Pitchfork Festival 2023: Day 2 Photos

Post Author: Rachel Kerrigan

The party in Chicago continues with standout sets from Big Thief, Weyes Blood, Vagabon & Yaya Bey

Saturday at Union Park saw the Pitchfork festivities perk up thanks to incredible sets from all the best and brightest in the indiesphere. Big Thief, the folk-tinged indie rock outfit who won’t stop peaking, performed their first major festival-headlining set (in a torrential rainstorm) to a crowd made up of plenty of die-hards and newer fans.

Meanwhile, heavenly indie balladeer Weyes Blood delivered an immaculate set of her own (also during the rain), while acts like Vagabon and Yaya Bey warmed up the audience nicely earlier in the day. You can scroll through below to check out those moments.
