From technicolor mesh tank tops to black fishnet tights, the outfits of the Pitchfork Music Festival on Friday varied as much as the musicians.
The three-day festival, which draws about 60,000 attendees, features more than 40 artists playing everything from alternative rock to hip hop and jazz.
Decked out in denim, many fans paired their Canadian tuxedos with cowboy boots or classic Dr. Martens. Others popped in everything from black to pink — possibly a nod to Barbenheimer weekend.
A stroll through the CHIRP Record Fair inside the festival featured flowy skirts with sun hats and that modern dad look of funky polos with New Balance sneakers, all while carrying vinyl tucked under their arms.
Here is a look at some of the fashion from the festival.
Joshua Madrid styled a boxy gingham dress with splashes of yellow in his boots, handbag and chain necklace.
Julian Day-Cooney took an effortlessly chic approach with their zodiac print set and homemade mesh bucket hat.
Sam Kmiec (left) and Luis Fernando (right) chose the festival over the movie theater, but said they will see Barbie and Oppenheimer next weekend. “We’ll be wearing the Pitchfork shirts at the showing of Barbenheimer,” Kmiec said with a laugh. “Free advertising.”
Just like Barbie, these crocs are all the rage this weekend.
At the Flatstock Poster Fair, warm toned patterns keep things cool.
Artist and dancer Matt Churney said he has gone to Pitchfork since its inception and teaches hacky sack. “I was a punk rocker back in the day, sort of fun stuff to wear, but … having holes in your clothing is very functional when you’re dancing.”
Jimmy Drenovsky said this was his first time wearing a matching set. He had one word to describe how it felt: “Empowering.”
Drag queen Vanity spangled her outfit in silky neutrals and flashing silver accents.
At Union Park, even the butterfly knew it had to get in on this fashion scene.
