Pitchfork Music Festival Paris is the not-to-be-missed music event of fall. The event’s home is right in the heart of the Grand Halle de la Villette in Paris’ 19th arrondissement, and has been since 2011. Over three days, the festival welcomes a music-mad crowd with an ambitious line-up that is unrivalled, showcasing the best international music from the indie scene.
Two new stages – bringing the total now to four; a more urban sounding, avant-garde line-up; fun nostalgic extras that’ll take you back to your childhood; a pop-up record store.
Pitchfork Paris have gradually introduced more and more hip-hop and urban music to their festival line-ups. Pitchfork Paris is sticking with this trend and dedicating the Thursday night entirely to hip-hop, inviting numerous rap and R&B artists to grace the stage. The festival has built up a solid reputation as a temple of indie music. And so, Friday and Saturday will be more pop-rock and electro orientated, keeping in tune with the festival’s image as an influential indie music bible.
The festival continues to set musical trends boasting its trailblazing status by inviting indie music’s new guard to take over the new concert spaces. Now in its 9th year, the three-day festival will feature around 50 different artists.
