Saturday was the dawn of a new day at Pitchfork Music Fest, and with it a new vibe.

With Friday’s rain-induced muddy mess dried up, attendees flocked to the grassy lawn of Union Park staking their spot for the day’s anticipated festivities including teenage punk rockers The Linda Lindas, reunited rockers Karate, and a double-dose of indie stars Japanese Breakfast and Mitski to close out the festivities.

A clear congregation of diehards amassed in equal lines for the band merchandise tent and the Chirp Record Fair picking up collectibles of their favorite acts of the day and very likely, the new artists they’ve discovered.

Here’s a look at the sights and sounds at Saturday’s Pitchfork. The festival concludes on Sunday.
