Pitchfork Festival 2012

The 2012 Pitchfork Music Festival kicked off in Union Park on Friday (7/13) afternoon after heavy rain slightly delayed the opening of the gates. Rain continued to be a theme of the day, but it couldn't stop the fun. Local garage rock greats Outer Minds played the first set, and the first great set of the day, followed by Jana Hunter's Lower Dens across the park which was the first set streamed live. The webcast continues today, Sunday, with Ty Segall, Real Estate, Chavez, Vampire Weekend and more.

More recaps from the weekend coming. For now, here are the pictures from Friday. One set is on BV Chicago. Another is here on BrooklynVegan, and they continue below...

Feist? Really? What year is this?

Maybe I'm losing it...or perhaps it's something the guy has always done...but I don't think the tambourine guy's guitar in Olivia Tremor Control has any strings on it.

not cool at all posting the weed smoking pictures.

Not cool AT ALL.

I'm coming to the conclusion that BV is just a prick. Between constantly providing an unrestricted forum for the absolute lowest troll commenting, increasingly hostile tone (recently teasing / withholding knowledge of set times for shows that readers clearly wanted)....

And now he's gonna be the fucking TMZ of private individuals lighting up at a festival?

Fucking crackers defending other crackers. No one care. Her cashier position at Jamba Juice will be intact

Thighs are too thick compare to the ankles. Pass. And short. Double pass. Good outfit though.

Who is that old bag with that babe?

Posted by Anonymous | July 16, 2012 9:05 AM

It might be the photographers, but does it look to anyone else like no one's having a very good time there (other than the smoking girl whose political career just got ruined)?

Feist does have very sexy legs
