Our priority is to create as safe and healthy of an environment as possible for the attendees, staff, and artists who are participating in the Pitchfork Music Festival. We are in close contact with local and state officials, working together to create the safest possible environment. As new information becomes available, we will be sure to update this page accordingly and message updated policies and procedures via our social channels and email list.

RISK WARNING: An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that may lead to severe illness and death. As festival dates approach, we will provide our community with pertinent information on festival preparedness, including what may be required beyond a ticket to enter festival grounds. By purchasing a ticket, you agree to comply with all Federal, State, and Local laws, ordinance, regulations, and the rules of the Event Organizers when attending the event.

Resource and Response Center

Since 2018, Pitchfork Music Festival has featured an on-site Resource and Response Center where professionally trained counselors and a dedicated security team are available to attendees who witness or experience behavior in violation of Pitchfork Music Festival’s Code of Conduct.
