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. Pitchfork Festival will present not just the most famous names in the music industry, but also newbies, featuring from pop, electronic sounds to true indie rock sounds. Except music, all visitors will have chance to visit art exhibitions, vintage markets and at the organisers pointed “all kind of unique wonders”.
During the first 2 days of the festival, once the shows end, the party sure isn’t over. Head over to the neighboring Trabendo club for the After Parties, to dance the night away until the early hours of the morning. On the Saturday night, the Grand Halle becomes party-central, switching to club mode. Expect Live sets and DJ mixes until 6am.
And in true pioneering Pitchfork Paris style, the festival has since spread its musical wings further over Paris, by introducing the Avant-Garde soirées in 2016. Set over two nights preceding the main event, gig-goers dot-to-dot from one venue to the next in the Bastille neighborhood, checking out the hottest new talent around right now.
