Bonjour Paris, Pitchfork Festival Goes International

Pitchfork fans take in a show.

Sorry kids. Your hopes of traveling to Paris for Halloween to see the first ever Pitchfork Paris Music Festival have been crushed. Tickets are sold out, out, out. There’s still a few contest lifelines, like this one from The Guardian.

The gala is scheduled for October 28-29 with pre-parties, post-parties, and we can only assume, super secret sexy parties. Scheduled to play so far: Bon Iver, Aphex Twin, Lykke Li, Washed Out, Iceage, Cut Copy, Jens Lekman, Wild Beasts, Real Estate, Four Tet, Pantha Du Prince, Fucked Up, Kathleen Edwards, Erol Alkan, The Rosebuds, Stornoway, Mondkopf — and of course the always mysterious More To Be Announced.

There’s more information on the site, and by “more”, we mean “we covered most of it.” The site is as delightfully sparse as a French art film, but here’s the link anyway.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
