Pitchfork has announced that this year’s iteration of their incredible Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago has been cancelled due to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

Refunds will be given, and they’re planning on coming back in 2021 “if the public health situation allows for it.”

In the meantime, we have plans for more livestreams, and more ways to use the full weight of Pitchfork to support musicians and the community around our festival. We’re not going anywhere—stay tuned, stay positive, and see you soon.

Sad to see but it was inevitable. 😢
