SHARE Want more Pitchfork fest? Fly to Paris this fall

Lollapalooza expanded internationally this year, launching Lollapalooza Chile in April. Now Chicago’s own Pitchfork Music Festival has announced it’s also going abroad.

Pichfork Music Festival Paris will premiere Oct. 28 and 29 in that city’s Parc de la Villette. The lineup thus far includes Bon Iver — who not only plays Oct. 29 but also selects the other bands on the bill — as well as Wild Beasts, Cut Copy, Kathleen Edwards and more.

Tickets are 79.90 Euros (roughly $115), available via digitick.com.

Pitchfork has previously collaborated on performances at Britain’s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival and the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Spain.
