Chicago Music Festival Update

At first, I was under the impression that the people behind last year’s Intonation Music Festival were going to be putting on the same festival in the same spot and changing the name to the Pitchfork Music Festival.

I guess that’s all true in its own way.

While none of this is confirmed yet, Greg Kot from the Chicago Tribune has the inside story (my emphasis added)…

On Thursday, two of the organizers behind last year’s Intonation Festival in Union Park told the Tribune they are working toward bringing Intonation back to the same location in early summer. The news came a day after the curators of last year’s Intonation Festival, Internet magazine Pitchfork Media, announced they are teaming with a former Intonation organizer, Mike Reed, to stage the Pitchfork Music Festival in Union Park on July 29-30.

There you have it. Some info coming straight from the horses’ mouths…

Uhm, don’t schedule it the same weekend as Lollapalooza 2006 and I’ll be damn happy this year. I’m planning on attending all three, at least for now.
